Aoraki Dragon Boat Association
Boat, Racing, Regatta
Dragon boating is a great way for a business house to get everyone "in the same boat, working toward a single purpose". It does not require very high levels of fitness, although it is ideal for those who are relatively sedentary to develop some fitness and flexibility over summer.
About 6 or 7 corporate teams compete year after year, and are looking for new paddlers to join them.
Or you could start your own company team. Cost is very reasonable - about $3,200 is all it costs for a squad of 22 to 25 people.
And for that you get as many training sessions as you like. Teams typically train for one hour on a weekday evening, from November to March, although teams can add more if tehy are so inclined.
Entry fees also include an "Early Bird" regatta (typically in February) and Regional Champs in mid-March.
