5th Annual Carolina Beach Dragon Boat Regatta and Festival (910-599-2879)
September 15, 2017

This is the 5th annual event in Sunny Carolina Beach right on the Atlantic Ocean, New Hanover County, North Carolina!  Please join the Island Men this September for this two day event of activities, scheduled for September 15th and 16th. Racing will be on a 300m race course along the shores of the Carolina Beach Yacht Basin, a protected area of water lined with beach homes, condos, and marinas. Community teams will be racing along with a few club teams from around the region.

This event brings together sports, health and wellness, and arts to celebrate our island community. Proceeds from this event will go directly to benefit Step Up for Soldiers and their programs providing volunteer services for renovations, recreation and recognition for recently disabled Veterans.  Learn more about the beneficiary.

Gather a group of friends, neighbors, customers, family or co-workers to form a team and get out on the water.  A dragon boat is a colorful 45-foot long watercraft that resembles a canoe. It's manned by a crew of 20, plus a steersman at the stern of the boat, and a drummer/pace setter sitting in the bow. Teams are encouraged to signup 22-25 members to cover any absences on race day.
