RSVP for Year End Races!

RSVP for Year End Races!

Welcome back!

After a great Oct break (and the post-race shirt-swapping frenzy in Hong Kong), we’re about to wrap up the year with a bunch of Shanglong activities:


1. 100 Boat Regatta, Qingpu, Nov 3


 This big event is going to be held at our very own Qingpu Watersports Center. Shanglong is helping our buddies at the Watersports Center spread the word to the Shanghai community. It is open to: local and foreign companies, non-profit organizations, schools and institutions, consulates, and clubs. We’re hoping to bring dragonboating to the masses! Write in to us and we’ll send you an info packet. Sign up as large/small boat teams, or set up tents on the side to promote your products or services.

Date: Nov 3

Events: 300m 22-man boats, 300m 12-man boats. (Steersman provided)

Schedule: Morning Opening Ceremony and Heats, Afternoon Finals and Closing Ceremony

Please send the word out – Shanglong will help your organization sign up for the event! (Either 22 or 12 man boat).
