For those unfamiliar with the sport, dragon boating is a boat of 20 paddlers, a drummer and a steer person. It is a team sport that requires power, speed, synchronization and endurance. Dragon boat participant skills will range from novice to competitive though no experience is required. Teams will represent local Western New York corporations, breast cancer survivors, police forces, firemen, and other community organizations.

There is no charge to spectators.
