Register

Anyone can participate in the Bucks County Dragon Boat Festival. All you need are two dozen friends, family members or co-workers who are interested in giving dragon boat racing a try!

Each team can register up to 24 paddlers (no less than 18) plus a drummer and a steersperson. A steersperson will be provided for those teams who need one.

Registration includes entry to the race and all the equipment necessary to race (paddle, pfd, etc.).

Team captains will be responsible for submitting the registration fee in full and ensuring that all team members complete the required waiver (sent to each member electronically).


Divisions

Teams can choose from one of three divisions in which to race:

  • Community division teams (competes in less than three events a season) will compete in 3 x 250 meter races (registration includes one practice scheduled prior to the event)
  • Sport division teams will compete in 3 x 500 meter races
  • Breast Cancer Survivor (A minimum of four registered teams are needed for this division to proceed. In the event there are not four teams registered for BCS the available teams will be placed in the Sport division)

Racing Class

There are two different racing classes that teams can register for: Mixed and Women

  • A Mixed Team consists of 20 paddlers with 10 female paddlers and 10 males in the boat (the drummer does not count toward this requirement)
  • A Women's Team is a 20-member, all-female crew (the drummer must also be female)
