Dragon boat practice for the curious...no experience necessary! We have a fun practice for beginners at 10:30 am the first Saturday of every month. Paddles and life vests are provided. Just bring some water for hydration, comfortable clothes/shoes that you don't mind getting wet, and join us for some fun and exercise on the water!
(Sorry, we can only allow those 18 and older)
Here is a fun video of us in action:
Please make sure to check your Meetup messages during the week before the course. You will receive further instructions from the event organizer.
Weather - This trip needs to be free of lightning and thunder to begin; if we are caught out by lightning on the trip we will seek shelter and proceed when safe. Rain is OK - after all, it is a water sport.
What if I can't make it this Saturday - Just send the event host a message and she will work some other time for you to join us.
Location - The Miami Yacht Club has a private gated entrance that is usually closed to the general public. To get there, take I-395 East/Miami Beach. Immediately after you cross the first water bridge and pass the Miami Children's Museum, take the right-hand exit for Parrot Jungle Trail. This road will wrap around and take you back under the highway, then past the Jungle Island attraction.
Once you pass Jungle Island, the road will curve left and you will come to a stop sign. Make a left and head toward the Yacht Club gate behind Jungle Island.
If the gate is closed, a Red Dragon team member will be there to let you in. If the gate is already open, park in the spaces near the main building/swimming pool and look for the dragon boats near the shore. If you have any trouble getting in, just contact the organizer.
Refunds are not offered for this Meetup.
