Synergy Dragon Boat Race - 10 Paddlers Boats! - Deerfield, FL

  • Jan 19, 2013 · 8:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Are you interested in racing on 10 person dragon boat?

We are looking into bringing two teams: one mixed (6 men and 4 women) and one women's team. If we have enough interest, maybe a men's team or two mixed teams. There is no limit, but we have to act fast. This meetup will close on December 28th.

Full club membership is required. If you are not a paid member, your name will be removed from the roster. Thanks for your understanding.

The cost is $38 ($40 via PayPal) per person if we pay by this Thursday. After that it is $43 ($45 via PayPal).

Please reply ASAP. The last race we missed out because by the time people decided to say yes, the event was sold out. Let's not let that happen again.

If you are interested, please RSVP and include your stronger side and your weight.
This is NOT first come first served. Team selection will be based on practice attendance, fitness level, skill level, and team's needs (paddlers stronger side and weight). The 10 paddlers boats are very tippy and therefore balance is extremely important.


Everyone is welcome to sign up and be a part of the team that "floats your boat."

We encourage you to race as many times as possible. Race experience is invaluable and can only be obtained by racing.

Marlen has waivers and will be asking you to sign them before the race. Get with her for a copy.


Our goal is to have a recreational, competitive, and competitive+  teams based on paddler's abilities and interest.

We are hoping to have a team for everybody, but it depends on YOU.

Let's start the year with a race ...and hopefully a medal under our belt. The last time we raced in Deerfield, we got Silver. Now, let's go for the GOLD!!

Paddles Up!

    Please plan to attend as many practices as possible and sign up on meetup ahead of time to secure your seat. Don't forget to workout off the water. If you have access to an indoor rowing machine (ERG), I recommend you use it. Sit ups, push ups, planks, Russian twists, and burpees are among the exercises you can do at home.
    Enjoy the holidays. Marlen

    I just spoke with the organizer. The event 80% full. We need five more to have two teams. I will send registration fee for one team by this Friday. Remember that this is a club team; therefore, club membership needs to be up to date. Please make sure you renew your membership for the year or for 6 months by the end of December. If you are not able to meet this deadline, please talk to me.
