A fun way to stay fit, meet new people and race in an ancient sport

The most fun you can have on water.

Are you new to DB?

Looking for a new sport?

Or just want to have fun and meet new people?

Then come join our Dragon Boat team as we kick off the new season this March!

We welcome men and women over 18 of all abilities; no experience is required, just enthusiasm, determination and commitment. You need to be able to swim at least 100m. We have life jackets for those who are a little unsure.


Training is at Sam Pak Wan (North) Beach, Discovery Bay - Saturdays, 9am - and is usually followed by a social coffee.

Further Information

Race Season 

We will be building our strength and learning the drills and skills to paddle together. Race season starts in mid January, and we quickly start preparing for the big Hong Kong Dragon Boat races on Lamma, Stanley, Deepwater Bay, Discovery Bay and other races, all held around May-June. Training gets serious, rain hail or shine...and there is a lot of laughing inbetween.


We are a very social team, and regularly organise fun events for the team. Race days are always a lot of fun and include some significant celebrating, win, lose or drown.

For more information, or to join our team please contact us at head_dragonboat@dbpirates.com
