The dragon boat itself is a fiberglass or teak hull boat measuring 39' to 48' feet long by 4' wide by 18" deep. Teams of 20 paddlers sit 2 abreast with a steer person in the back and a drummer in the front. The race boats are designed as replicas of Chinese dragon boats used more than 2000 years ago. Dragon Boat Racing is the fastest growing water sport activity in the world..
