Dragon Boat racing has been practiced for more than 2000 years, making it one of China’s oldest and most revered traditions. In the Chinese culture, the Dragon is a symbol for good luck and is said to live within the sea and in the clouds, controlling the rainfall. Over the years the racing has come to symbolise a ritual to bring luck and prosperity to a city. The Social Dragon Boat Regatta is an opportunity for the community to get involved in the tradition of fun, with any organisation, company, association, or group of friends able to form a team be part of this event. The training would be provided. Running throughout the day and in conjunction with other cultural performances, the afternoon will finish off with a presentation to crown the Social Teams winners.
