Teamwork is everything in Dragon Boat Racing, representing unity, strength, loyalty, honor, spirit, cooperation and determination.
These human-powered watercrafts are long and slender with decorated dragon heads and tails which are navigated by 12-16 rowers to the beat of heavy drums.
The Dragon Boat Challenge will see corporates from all over the Western Cape, contesting in mixed teams for the grand prize of complimentary practice sessions for their company leading up to the Cape Town Corporate Games in June 2013.
During the Complimentary Training Sessions, the crew will be taught the techniques, commands and paddlers tips, ensuring that they are well prepared and synchronized for the race. A perfectly synchronized team will almost always beat a stronger, but less coordinated team.
There will be 3 Dragon Boats in 1 Race to determine if you have got what it takes to represent your company in the winning crew.
The Cape Town Corporate Games organisers are creating a networking opportunity for companies on a different platform. The Dragon Boat Challenge will allow one selected individual from each of the various companies to experience the Games first hand before the Cape Town Corporate Games in June 2013.
Limited space is available so contact the Cape Town Corporate Games Office on firstname.lastname@example.org you could join in on the race!
