West Point Lake Dragon Boat Race

Join us for the 8th annual West Point Lake Dragon Boat Race!

Dragon boat racing is the 8th fastest growing sport in the world with more than 50 million people in 63 countries participating each year. Teams of up to 20 paddlers and a drummer race in authentic Hong Kong-style, 46-footlong dragon boats in this unique cultural event. Coaches and professional steerers are provided to assist each team. All ages and skill levels can paddle, making it the ultimate team-building sport.

Dragon boat racing is also a very visual sport. If everyone is watching and working together, magic can happen in a dragon boat. Teams have to follow the strategy and then execute. The team members in the front must paddle in perfect timing as an example for the back half of the boat. When the power from the middle is mixed with the speed and ability of the paddlers in the back, a dragon boat can glide quickly through the water.

In addition to the actual races happening on the lake, there is a festival atmosphere happening on land. Each team has a tailgating area and friends to cheer them on. Music and announcements are being played from the main stage. This family fun event hosts food vendors and a picnic venue.
