DC Dragon Boat Festival Dates Set for 2007
The 6th Annual Washington DC International Dragon Boat Festival will be
held on May 19-20, 2007 on the Potomac River in downtown Washington DC.
This two day event will include both 250 and 500 meter races, with
women's, mixed, men's, and BCS divisions. There will also be a special
challenge race- the National Capital Challenge. We invite teams from
other national capitals to join their sister team from Washington, the
DC Dragons, in a special race on both days to celebrate our communal
spirit. Last year we had teams from Ottawa, Canada and Taipei, Taiwan
join us for the event. We encourage everyone to come and enjoy our city
for the weekend. For more info, watch our website at
We also invite you to come paddle with our club if you happen to be in
town. We paddle from March through November each year, and you can find
out more about our paddling club at www.ncawpa.org
See you on the water!
