Dragonboat Race Day

DRAGONS will once again invade Beaufort, SC this June at Waterfront Park in downtown Beaufort! Dragonboat races are sponsored by DragonBoat Beaufort, the local cancer survivor/supporter racing team. Over the last few years, the event has become increasingly popular among locals and out-of-towners alike. Each year, the Dragonboat Race Day draws hundreds of paddlers and thousands of spectators to the Beaufort seawall. The event raises thousands for the organization which helps support those impacted by cancer in Beaufort County both through the sport of dragonboat racing, and outreach efforts, including one-one-one grants to help with needs that are typically not met through traditional means. Anyone can form a team – businesses, community organizations, civic clubs, churches, schools. All you need is 20-25 paddlers and a drummer to form a team. All teams will be trained how to paddle a dragonboat and all equipment will be supplied including a trained steerer. Teams will race three times during Race Day competing for medals.
