Event description

Description

The Independence Dragon Boat Regatta is the only Dragon Boat race in the United States run by active members of Team USA - 2007 and 2011 World Champions!

We had a great time last year, and looking to continue the tradition. If you are interested in competing as part of the HQ Veterans Network Dragon Boat team, let us know by clicking on the link below. There will be a $10 fee (covers the cost of your team t-shirt) that will be collected at a later date.


The race and all practices will take place on the Schuylkill River. No experience necessary! We'll be coached and steered by members of Team USA. They will teach us how to hold the paddle, the stroke, everything.

Race Day:

Saturday, June 3rd

What's it like on race day?

  • Our team will race in an ultra-wide, ultra-safe, 5-lane setup, with a chase boat in each lane.
  • Each boat on race-day will be steered by a member of the US National Dragon Boat Team.

VetNet, APA, and other ERGs will have a reserved tent along the river to watch and relax between our races. Food, fun, and a great experience. Bring your friends and family to participate in the fun!
