2019 rACES & FEATURED Events



As with all sports, Dragon Boat Racing has inherent risks (we do paddle by the ocean, after all... and it's highly probable you'll get dunked on your birthday by your teammates). SCDBC and X-Generals require all paddlers to complete and submit the following e-forms prior to your first practice of each season.
