Dragon Boats

Dragon Boats WeymouthDragon Boat Racing has ancient Chinese origins and it’s history has been traced back more than 2000 years.

The first participants were superstitious Chinese villagers who celebrated the 5th day of the 5th lunar month of the Chinese calendar. Racing was held to avert misfortune and encourage the rains needed for prosperity – and the object of their worship was the dragon. The dragon of Asia has traditionally been a symbol of water – It is said to rule the rivers and seas and dominate the clouds and rains.
