No experience necessary, we will provide your training!

  • Each team should consist of 20 paddlers and 1 drummer. DBC will provide your steersperson, life jackets and paddles. All team members must be at least 14 years of age (anyone under the age of 18 must have waiver signed by Parent/Guardian). Each team is allowed ONE boat.
  • A team may have only 2 club paddlers. A club paddler is defined as someone who, 1) practices/ed regularly with a club team, 2) has participated in races, 3) participated in any type of paddling clinic/camp. These rules do not pertain to cancer survivor teams.
  • A 10×10 tent will be provided for your team. No tables are provided.
  • Two practice sessions will be provided the two weeks before the festival, beginning April 25. The practice sessions will be scheduled after the Team Captain’s Meeting and as soon as your team pays its registration fee.
  • The Charleston Dragon Boat Festival races 4 divisions: Mixed (must have at least 8 women), Women’s, Men’s (maximum of 18 paddlers) and Cancer Survivors (must have 12 survivors on the team).
  • Festival organizers have the right to reduce the number of paddlers for any team based on water conditions and safety concerns.
  • We encourage all teams to decorate their tent and get decked out in original team t-shirts. Awards will go to best tent décor and team shirts.
