CAROLINA BEACH – More than 20 paddlers who comprise the Oriental Dragon Boat Club – known as the ‘Dragon Masters – traveled to participate in the Carolina Beach Dragon Boat Festival on Saturday, Sept. 21. It was perfect weather and there were 13 teams that participated.

The course was laid out in the Carolina Beach Harbor and was approximately 400 meters long. There were two qualifying heats that the Dragon Masters won! Both heats were against much younger competition.

These two wins landed the Dragon Masters in the Class A semi-finals. The Dragon Masters lost their semi-final race to the eventual overall winner: Island Montessori. It was a great event and we had a great time enjoying the beach and the competition.
