DP Dragon Boat Festival will be held at Dubai Water Canal on 27th and 28th of January, 2017.
Dragon Boating is believed to have started 2500 years ago in China. It is now widely practised around the world.
The modern sport of Dragon Boating consists of a long canoe (approx 12 metres) with twenty paddlers who sit ten long and two abreast, one drummer who sits at the front and keeps time, and a sweep, who stands at the back and steers.
This is a community festival bringing together corporate, university, school and community groups from across the UAE.
Dragon Boating is a thrilling water sport, full of adrenaline, sportsmanship, strategy and technique.
Don’t miss out this exciting opportunity to enjoy the one of the oldest sports in the world today.
