Grand Canal Dock, Saturday 14th September - Sunday 15th September

Dragon boating is an ancient Chinese sport which dates back over 2000 years to a time of rivalry, intrigue and corruption. The dragon boat itself is deeply embedded in China's dragon culture, with each boat having an ornately carved dragon's head at the bow and tail in the stern. The boat is painted with scales and the paddles symbolically represent the dragon's claws. Modern day dragon boating has evolved as a high performance sport, capturing the imagination of the world by storm. With over 50 million paddlers participating annually in competitions worldwide, it is the fastest growing water sport in the world.
