The COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic is a fast moving situation that is changing on a daily basis. It has affected all our lives, especially social gatherings and events.

DragonBoat Beaufort is monitoring the situation through notices from both local and state governments. Ensuring the safety of our members and event participants is a top priority.

At this time we plan on holding the Dragon Boat Races on June 27 as scheduled. We are continually monitoring the situation and will provide updates as and when they are available.

DragonBoat Beaufort relies on donations to support our mission of helping local cancer patients and Dragon Boat Race Day is our primary fundraiser. You can support our organization at any time by clicking on the “Donate Now” link and making a general donation to the DragonBoat Beaufort Fund.

We extend our best wishes to you and your loved ones during this difficult time.

The Dragon Boat Race Day team.

Welcome Captains

Hello Raceday Team Captains !!

Happy 2020 Paddling Season!  It’s all finally here & that means time to start thinking about Raceday & getting your teams registered.  Dragonboat Raceday will once again be held at our beautiful downtown Waterfront Park on Sat, June 27th, so reserve that day on your calendar now!

Our Raceday web site has been redesigned so may not look as you expect, but you can register & move forward with populating your rosters any time — we’re ready!  Website address as follows:; or find by checking “DBB Raceday 2020“.  Once there, click on “Menu” & go to “Teams”.  Don’t forget to include a brief “team bio”.

As before, we’ll have a Mixed Cancer Survivor Division, a Senior Division (all members 50+ yrs) & a Community Division (at least 8 female paddlers in the boat each race), all competing for medals.  We’ve also got some fun groups of teams competing for a Winner’s Cup (& bragging rights!).  And don’t forget the prizes in our fun categories — Best Decorated Tent, Best Team T-shirt, Best Costumed Drummer, Drummer Raising Most $$’s, & Best Team Spirit.

Lastly, I have someone assisting me this year coordinating teams — Darlene McGrath, who can be contacted at the above email for any questions/concerns you may have now or in the future.  Please don’t hesitate to contact either one of us if you need to.

So jump on the website & get your teams registered as quickly as possible — you don’t want to miss Dragonboat Raceday 2020!!

Paddles Up!

PS –Dragonboat Beaufort will be launching their boats (with blessings from the weather) on March 21st; we invite local team captains not already members of DBB, to join us for a Sat paddle anytime after the 21st — just let us know if you’re interested, the date, & we’ll assure you have a seat in the boat.  We want you to get those “paddling juices” flowing & get excited about being out there on the water in a DRAGONBOAT!!!
