Last year, 15 teams from local businesses & community groups competed in the 2023 races on Chautauqua Lake held at the beautiful Celoron Park. Participants, co-workers, friends, and family shared an enjoyable and entertaining afternoon of friendly competition. We hope to see those teams, plus many new ones, in the water this August. 

Bring your friends, enjoy the competition, and win some bling! All awards are created locally by Resource Center Creation Art Program. Prizes will also be given for most interactive and best dressed drummers!

We would love to have your team join us for the exhilarating experience of racing a Dragon Boat on Chautauqua Lake! 

Originating in China over 2,000 years ago, Dragon Boat racing is the fastest growing team water sports in the world. Prior experience not required; equipment and training will be provided. You simply need the desire to participate and enjoy a friendly athletic contest!
