Ride the Dragon: Paddling Workshop

Dragon boat racing is the fastest growing water sport in the U.S.A. This is your chance to learn how to paddle these magnificent 41-foot “canoes” with twenty paddlers, a drummer and a steers person. The workshop begins with on-land instruction on safety and paddle techniques before going out on the Schuylkill River. Participants will be issued life vests and paddles. Students are asked to bring a folding chair and a water bottle to the class. A hearty snack and beverage will be provided after your river trip.

Launch will be from the Martin Luther King Drive side of the river.
