A tradition going back thousands of years in ancient China, Dragon boat races are a true test of teamwork. Host Bret Amundson visited Starbuck to check out the 11th annual dragon boat race festival on Lake Minnewaska.
Serious sport. Serious fun.
Teamwork is the foundation of dragon boat racing, an activity which originated in ancient China. Twenty paddlers move in unison with the aid of a steerperson and a drummer. People of all ages and fitness levels can participate since synchronized movements, rather than strength and experience, are the keys to success.
