Race a Community Dragon Boat at the Sarasota International Dragon Boat Festival

Interest in this particular effort in fielding a 20-paddler boat is short of the requirements for forming a community team solely with our own resources. We are in contact with other teams within our network to see if it is possible to fill seats in other community event entries with potential paddlers who have expressed interest here.

This has been a sign up to see how many paddlers want to race at this event. This is a 20 person boat race. 15 paddlers would have been a minimum for us to register the team.

It is still possible to race on a community team supported by the JAX Fire Dragons in Sarasota for the International Dragon Boat Festival: an event specifically designed for paddlers new to this sport and want to experience a festival first hand.

Overall Concept:
Interested paddlers will form a 20-paddler team and enter in the Community Division which is ideal for newer paddlers who have never raced but who are interested to know more about the sport of Dragon Boat Racing or want to experience it first hand.

The Community Division teams will race (3) races of 500 meters each.

The cost for registration for this boat entry is $1245 for the boat. The cost for each paddler would be approximately $62.25. We would consider adding a few alternates to offer paddlers a break from one of the races and reduce the cost accordingly.

In order to register and race we would need a verbal and monetary commitment from each paddler before we register.

As of Sunday, May 15, there are (7) signed up for this event. Those who have signed up please expect a direct message in this forum to share details of how you might be able to still race.
