Cancer survivor & supporter team won their Division last year!


RIVER DUNES – A crowd favorite, this team put in a stellar performance during the 2015 competition, and have made all arrangements for a return on Saturday, Aug. 13 to defend the title.

In a recent e-mail to Oriental Dragon Boat Race organizers, the team captain of DragonBoat-Beaufort put it well:


“We are so excited!” she wrote. “We had such a wonderful time last year and so enjoyed the area (and your hospitality!). The Oriental race was on our ‘Have to Go Back!’ list for this year.”

Spectators and participants will remember DragonBoat-Beaufort from the hot pink, iridescent jerseys that team members wore, making the team easily visible during each of their three grueling races on the waters of Grace Harbor at River Dunes.

One observer described the scene:

“Mix a dragon boat with 20 cancer survivor/supporters and what do you get? A 40-armed River Dragon that races through the water like the wind!!”
