We’re Going Places!

San Diego Dragon Boat Team (SDDBT) is going places! And we need your support to help us reach our ultimate destination of Aix les Bains, France.

Since our founding in 1983, SDDBT has operated with a mission of preserving the history and culture of dragon boating, and to growing the sport in San Diego. While our goal has always been to give back to our community, we humbly request that you give what you can to help us bring pride to “America’s Finest City” as our Mixed Premier and Senior B Women’s crews participate on a global stage.

From August 24-30, SDDBT will compete against top teams from around the world at
the 12th International Dragon Boat Federation Club Crew World Championships (dragonboat-aix2020.fr) in the “Riviera of the Alps.”

Aside from our “France-raising” efforts listed below, we also seek donors and sponsors who can help us reach our goal of offsetting travel expenses. You’ll find details at SDDBT.org.

“France-raising” Fun!
