    Hello, I am so interested in joining one of the dragon clubs! My home is in the village of Richmond. Is this Eastport Sun Dragon club co-ed.? I love competition ( completed 36 sprint triathlons and 2 half marathons). Please send some information. You can call me to 3095300958.

      Marie, I am forwarding your request to all the dragon boat team captains so that they might reply to you.

    I am interested in joining one of the dragon boat clubs. I do not live in The Villages. Is living within The Villages a requirement? Thank you.

    Hi Beth,

    Being a Villager is indeed a requirement to paddle with any of the Grand Masters Dragon Boat Club teams. However, there are two teams that paddle at the Lake Miona park just off Rainey Trail that accept non-Villagers: The Heat and the Dragon Sisters. I’m sure that both teams have a online presence that you can use to find contact information.

      Hi Steve,

      Once you have your Village ID in hand, you are welcome to come try out any dragon boat team in The Villages (except the Dirty Dozen which is for retired race team members). Contact any of the captains listed here on our website for their hours and how to arrange a practice with them.

    Hi: My husband and I are interested in trying out dragon boat racing.
    We now live in the Village of Newell for the six months.
    Could you please give me some direction on the process?

    Regards, Kim
