Dragon Boat races at Smith Mountain Lake

A fun time at the lake.  Over 20 teams will man the 20 paddling positions on each boat.  Lots of participants.  Three boats race at a time in multiple heats, so lots of racing action.

Capture the action from your own boat, if you have one, or hitch a ride with someone who does.  Post a comment if you can share your boat and we can organize the water photographers.  Boat operators must observe "no wake" rules and not get so close as to interfere with the racers.  "Duh"

Parkway Marina is on a long peninsula that parallels the race course so you can capture the race action and all the pre and post race activities from land and probably have more photo opportunities.

Who can get the best photos?  No charge for admission.
