The mission of Qatar Dragon Boat is to promote the growth and development of dragon boat racing in Qatar at all levels of competition. We strive to maintain the cultural traditions of the sport and to promote health and community through the sport of dragon boat racing.
Since 2014, we have introduced over 6000 participants to dragon boat racing through our competitions and team-building activities. Our festival races are one of the largest water sports events in Qatar and attract all segments of the Qatar community.
Dragon boat racing has its humble beginnings in Qatar when the first dragon boat was shipped to Doha in October 2013. Within this time frame, multiple dragon boat teams have setup as well as the organization of regular dragon boat competitions in Qatar. The sport continues to attract a growing community of participants from amateur paddlers to youth participants.
