Have you wanted to try dragon boat racing but never could convince 19 of your friends to join you in paddling? Well, here's your chance -- we're offering Dragon Boat 101, an introduction to dragon boat racing for both adults and children (ages 13-17), at the festival!
You just need to sign up on Saturday July 19 between 9 am and noon at the Race Registration Tent, which is next to the dock where the boats are loaded and unloaded for each race.
You'll have the chance to get on the water and have at least one full race with another team of DB101 newbies. We will provide the on-shore training, safety guidelines, personal flotation device (PFD) and paddle.
It's just about the most exciting minute-and-a-half you'll ever spend (and great exercise too).
