About us

 

We, the Hong Kong Amateur Dragon Boat Association Ltd., are a non-profit making sports organization established since 1988 and our prime objective is to promote dragon boating activities.

We organize various forms of dragon boat activities. On the racing part, we have regular straight course sprinting races for both standard sized dragon boats as well as for mini dragon boats. Our ‘Summer Vigor Mini Dragon Boat Race’ is the most popular series that held on an annual basis and attracts more than a hundred teams every year. Apart from conventional racings, we have our ‘Hong Kong Dragon Boat Marathon’ - an exceptionally long distance (more than 28 km) paddling race. This event has been hosted annually since 1994. The Marathon is unique to all other races in Hong Kong and around the world, and it poses an extreme challenge to all participants both in terms of physical strength and will-power. It is considered an honor and achievement to have completed this most grueling race.

Apart from races, we also organize various training courses for paddlers, steersmen, umpires and coaches. Some of these courses were conducted jointly with the famous Shunde Dragon Boat Team where participants had the opportunity to share experience with these renowned dragon boat enthusiasts.

We also help schools and companies to form their own dragon boat teams and to organize ‘Fun Day’ for them for recreational and team building purposes.
