The dragon boat festival of China started about 2000 years ago. It is celebrated on the 5th day of the 5th lunar month to commemorate the famous patriotic poet Qu Yuan from the Warring States Period (475 B.C- 221 B. C).

A dragon boat is a human powered watercraft that is traditionally made from teak wood to various designs and sizes. Today, dragon boats are used for competitive purposes, and thus are made of carbon fiber and other lightweight materials.

The dragon boat is deeply embedded in China’s Dragon culture, with each boat having an ornately carved dragon’s head at the Bow and a tail in the stern. During dragon boat races the hull is painted with dragon scales and paddles represent the claws. A single dragon boat consists of 18 to 20 paddlers plus a drummer and a steer’s person. The main force during a dragon boat race comes from paddlers who actuate the boat. Drummers are in charge of guiding the frequency and synchronicity of all paddlers moves. Meanwhile the drumbeat also inspires the crew’s spirit in the competition. The steers person takes the control of the amoving direction of the boat, and guarantees the safety of other members.
