Anyone can race with us! Dragon Boats are supplied by our race partners at High Five Dragon Boats. You sign up and we provide the boat.
Groups, organizations and corporate supporters can participate with a 10 person team and paddle in the Dragon Boat Races against other competing teams. You will need 10 paddlers and 1 drummer to keep the pace. Its always good to have substitute paddlers also. A practice session will be held a day or two before the event.
Everyone can participate for this fun day out on the St Johns River in Downtown Palatka. See our team categories by clicking the button to the right.
