Adaptive rowers and families, the Great Miami Rowing Center is in its 2nd year of hosting the Hamilton Dragon Boat Festival. This signature community event, held on September 9th this year, includes teams of 21 paddlers racing in traditional Chinese dragon boats.
The Hamilton Dragon Boat Festival is about community, culture, teamwork, and families. The teams are comprised of businesses, church and civic groups, school groups, municipalities, as well as experienced recreational paddlers. Each team has three days to practice at least once leading up to the race. Professional coaches and steerers are available to give you all the competitive advantage needed. On race day, each team will race three times until we’ve identified the boat with the fastest time to declare the winner.
If you want to race in the Dragon Boat Festival, contact Diane at SBCC and we will determine if we have enough interest to organize a boat.
