Women and girls – join us for an exciting opportunity to try the exhilarating sport of Dragon Boating, with the Cyprus Dragon Boat Federation!
*WHAT IS DRAGON BOATING?*
Dragon boating is a fun and accessible sport for people of all ages who are reasonably fit, a team player and enjoy being on the water!
Dragon boats are brightly painted and decorated with a dragon head and tail for race events. They are made from fiber-glass and are just over 12 m long, weigh about 255 kg and hold a crew of 22 – 20 paddlers sitting side-by-side on benches, as well as a Sweep who steers the boat and a Drummer who beats a large drum at the bow. The crew paddles in time with the drummer.
