CA Global to compete in 9th Dragon Boat Regatta in Zandvlei, Muizenberg
CA Global to compete in 9th Dragon Boat Regatta in Zandvlei on 3rd October 2015
*Kindly note that the venue is Zandvlei and not Zeekoevlei as previously mentioned.
Pull up your sleeves, pick up your oars and put your Dragon Boat racing game-face on for the 9th Annual Dragon Boat Regatta hosted by ,The Rotary Club Cape of Good Hope!!!
Cape Town is the Dragon Boat Racing hotspot of South Africa with a very active community of Dragon Boat Racers. This will be my first time competing in the race but based on the feedback from my colleagues who have previously entered for the race, it is lots of fun not to mention an awesome workout.
About Dragon Boat Racing
Dragon boat racing is actually a tradition brought to Cape Town from ancient China, after Cape Town was gifted 2 dragon boats from Taiwan.
The key thing to remember when racing a dragon boat is teamwork. It is also a sport that encourages all ages, both sexes and all levels of fitness to participate in. The best part is that “green” paddlers (like myself) can be coached to respectably competitive level, in a very short space of time.
