We are passionate about being out on the water, and paddle together twice a week. We compete regularly in races along the West Coast against local and international teams! And we love to hang out together outside of the boat, which usually involves enjoying good food together. Thanks to our sponsors Tung Chun and Import Food Network we bring the traditional sports of dragon boating together with a long tradition of good food.
So your new year resolutions are to try new activity, exercise and socialize more. Joining our dragon boat team is your perfect kill-two-birds-with-one-stone. Or for this case, 3 resolutions with one. And have fun while at it! We are starting 2014 season practice! Check out the details here!
The 18th Annual SF International Dragon Boat Festival is a free weekend of world-class dragon boat racing in the shadow of the new bay bridge, cultural performances, and family activities at the largest competitive dragon boat festival in the U.S. Lightwave took GOLD in Rec A Consolation with an impressive finish. Way to Go Lightwave!
Created 25 years ago as a showcase of Vancouver’s growing cultural diversity, this first-of-its-kind event has grown to become a grand celebration of Canada’s unique multicultural heritage with exciting programs and professional performances by well-known entertainers. Visual arts displays and activities from local community groups, and of course, the world-class dragon boat races make the Rio Tinto Alcan Dragon Boat Festival Vancouver’s most anticipated and prestigious summer event.
We like to paddle and we like to eat. Go Waves! ----- LightWave DragonBoat
