Dragon Boat racing is one of the fastest growing team water sports in the world – especially among breast cancer survivors. According to the International Breast Cancer Paddlers’ Commission, the sport originated 2,000 years ago in China. A team of 20 paddlers, each with one oar – plus a steersperson and a drummer to keep everyone in sync – race in an authentic 46-foot long Hong Kong style dragon boat.
