We are Team Survivor Sea Dragons and one of the programs of Team Survivor San Diego. We are a group of dedicated women of various ages, backgrounds, and athletic abilities who are enthusiastically participating and paddling in the sport of Dragon Boat Racing. We are cancer survivors who share the same goal to enhance our own physical fitness and to share the joys and benefits of dragon boating with all who are interested. Our Sea Dragon Dragon Boat program began in 2008 and we have benefited greatly from being one the programs of Team Survivor San Diego (TSSD)*
What is Dragon boat racing? For those unfamiliar with the sport of dragon boating, simply put, it is a boat of 20 paddlers, a drummer and a steers person paddling to cross the finish line faster than their competition. It is a team sport in its purest form that encompasses the elements of power, speed, synchronization and endurance.
We competed at the 12th Annual Arizona Dragon Boat FestivalMarch 28th and 29th, 2015 and brought home Gold, winning the ultimate Survivor race - these races draw national competitive teams! Last year in 2014 our Sea Dragons attended three competitive events: the AZ Dragon Boat Festival in Tempe Town Lake, the 2014 Long Beach Dragon Boat Festival and our home town event, San Diego Dragon Boat Festival at Mission Bay. In 2013 our team attended four competitive events: AZ Dragon Boat Festival in Tempe Town Lake, Rio Tinto Alcan Dragon Boat Festival in Vancouver BC, Long Beach Dragon Boat Festival Races and of course, our Annual San Diego Dragon Boat Festival.
