The organizing committee for the 2018 ICF Dragon Boat World Championship invites you to explore the sport of dragon boat racing, which dates back more than 2,000 years. With ancient Chinese origins, the first participants were Chinese villagers who held races in the belief it would show worship to the dragon, a traditional symbol of water. Today, the sport is fast and exciting with crews of either 10 or 20 paddling to the beat of a drum over a set distance.

World Championships have been held in Russia, Poland, Italy and Hungary.  The 2018 event is the first ICF World Championship in the Americas, and we are thrilled to invite the world to come and experience the excitement and grandeur of the ICF Dragon Boat World Championships on Lake Lanier in Gainesville, GA USA.
