If you’re ever down at District Wharf on a warm evening, you might catch a glimpse of us as you gaze across the Potomac River. Twenty paddlers, a steerer, and our coach in a long, canoe-like boat. Watch as we paddle back and forth in synchrony. Commands echo across the harbor…
“Paddles up!”…“Sit Ready!”…“Attention!”
Paddles pierce the water and glisten in the setting sun. In together, out together – working as one. This is the sport of dragon boat racing.
This is our passion.
This is what brings us together.
This is DC Dragon Boat Club.
