Dragon Boating for Beginners

Signup no longer available. Please contact the coordinator directly.

Dragon boating: it’s a Hong Kong tradition. If you’ve never been out on a boat before, here’s your chance! No experience necessary and OK for any fitness level. We’ll share the history of dragon boating, show you a bit of technique and then we’ll all go out on the water for an hour. The award-winning AWA Globe Paddlers will be assisting on the boats, so no worries that we won’t make it back to shore! We may even have a fun race or two. If you think it would be fun to get out on a dragon boat and try a little paddling, this is your chance. Just come with a willing attitude to meet some new friends, get wet and have lots of fun – you can even bring your spouse/partner if you’d like! We’ll supply the boat, paddles and steersman. Afterward, we can shower and change at the Stanley Sports Centre and go for lunch at shared expense. This popular activity will fill up quickly, so sign up early to avoid disappointment.
