Dragon Boat race

The race of the dragon boats can be entered by up to four crews consisting even of the best laymen and sports dabblers. Healthy competition during teambuilding integrates people and this type of activity is ideal for teaching people how to work and cooperate in a group.
Each crew consists of 22 people – 20 of them are amateur rowers. In each crew there is also a helmsman and drummer. They are the professionals from the Water Club, who are not strangers to this sport. The dragon boat races started to evolve into a sports discipline in the 1980’s. They are still growing in popularity.
The boats, whose exact origin is hard to determine, are some two thousand years old… There are available at least two theories about the beginnings of the dragon boats. However, the boats are sure to be come from China.

Nowadays, in many countries there are regattas and events including the World Championships.

The most popular contemporary boats with the dragon head on their prow and the dragon tail on their stern can accommodate 22 persons.

Participation in the recreational dragon boats regatta which we offer means also immediate contact with the elements.  That is why the event is monitored by lifeguards on motorboats while medics are around to help in case of emergency

It is easiest to organize any regatta in the centre of Gdańsk on Motława, on its section called “Zielony Most- Żuraw” (Green Bridge – Crane). Due to such a location the regatta can be viewed by tourists strolling along the Długie Pobrzeże and their applause can add to the agitation and fervour of the contestants.

After the regatta it is possible to organize a party in a stylish naval club with sea shanty music.
