The Seattle Flying Dragons are folks who enjoy paddling together as a team. For those unfamiliar with the sport, dragon boating is a boat of 20 paddlers, a drummer, and a steersperson paddling to cross the finish line faster than their competition. It's a team sport in its purest form that encompasses the elements of power, speed, synchronization, and endurance.
The appeal of dragon boating is that the sport can accommodate a wide spectrum of skill levels ranging from novice to competitive. It’s also a low-impact, full-body workout for people of any experience level. Not to mention that it's lots of fun! We can make a paddler out of anyone - it's all about time on the water.
We paddle year-round on Lake Union in Seattle and the Sammamish River Slough in Kenmore.
During the spring and summer months paddlers can choose to compete in a variety of dragon boat races and other events. Read more about us in Seattle Times' "Fit for Life" series.
Spotlight on our sponsors: The wonderful people at Kenmore Air have hosted our club since 2005, providing moorage for our three dragon boats on Lake Union. We are so grateful to have Kenmore Air as our host and primary sponsor. Thank you!
