Dragon boat racing is one of the fastest growing sports in the world. Originating in China some 2,000 years ago, it is popular throughout Asia, the Pacific Islands, Europe and the United States. Crews consist of 20 paddlers, a drummer and a steerer. The Alameda Dragon Flyers Dragon Boat Racing Club runs practices and boot camps 3 times a week. We participate in local and West Coast races from April through October each year, and have an active social calendar for paddlers and their non-paddling friends and family members. Novice, recreational and competitive paddlers 18 years and older are invited to to attend 3 introductory sessions before joining. Equipment and instruction are provided; swimming ability is not required. It's a great workout at a bargain price - come check us out today! We meet at the Bridgeside Shopping Center, 2531 Blanding Avenue in Alameda. Our dock is behind the Nob Hill grocery store. Ask for Nancy or Carol when you arrive. E-mail carol1015@comcast.net for more information.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
