First Ever Israel Dragon Boat Racing
For the first time ever Dragon Boat Racing will come to Israel in May 2012 – on the Kineret (Sea of Galilee). This has to be one of the most exciting and unusual things due to happen in Israel in 2012.
Dragon Boat Racing is a rapidly growing international sport – held in about 70 countries around the world. The sport originates in China.
Modern dragon boats have 20 paddlers, a steersperson and a drummer all working as a team combining their timing and their raw strength to move the boat smoothly through the water.
About the Israel Dragon Boat Festival
The Israel Dragon Boat festival is a joint Canadian Israeli initiative – started by Canadians with a passion for dragon boat racing and for Israel. It aims to raise substantial monies for some very worthy charities – we wish them every success.
The Israel Dragon Boat Festival will take place May 17 & 18 2012. The quota for Israel based boats has been filled but there are some individual crew spots left.
It promises to be colorful lively fun event.
