DRAGON BOAT RACING

Charlevoix Circle of Arts' biggest fundraising event!  

Our Annual Charlevoix Dragon Boat Festival on August 7, 2021.  

Dragon Boat Races are a rapidly growing sport combining rich Chinese traditions, competition, team building and LOTS OF FUN! 

 

A typical dragon boat is 46’ long and features:

20 Paddlers

1 Drummer

1 Steersman

During the course of the race, the job of the drummer is to keep an effective beat in order to synchronize the paddlers. 
Our Dragon Boat Race is approximately 250 meters long and lasts just a few minutes.  Each team is guaranteed to race at least two times. 
The boats are truly works of art.! They are colorful crafts with dragon scales including a dragon head and tail.
