2021 Festival Schedule
Throughout the season, various JDBC teams will compete in festivals around the Southeast. These festivals are optional but it is a fun way to bring together diverse paddlers of all different abilities and strengths to achieve a common goal. There are various lengths raced depending on the festival you attend. These festivals gather people from different areas of the United States and Canada!
For 2021 festivals we plan to attend, visit https://www.meetup.com/Jacksonville-Dragon-Boat-Club
Join us! We accept anyone who is interested in getting bit my the dragon. Paddling is a great sport for those who enjoy the water.
JDBC: When preparing for festivals, everyone has an opportunity to participate. There are divisions for extremely competitive teams, divisions for social teams (community) and those for breast cancer teams. There are often teams for all-men (open) and all-women teams, as well.
MAMMOGLAMS: The Mammoglams is an all-breast cancer team. This team focuses on camaraderie, emotional support, and being engaged in a healthy lifestyle in order to improve the quality of life for breast cancer survivors. They consider themselves a "floating support group." The Mammoglams typically paddle in four to five festivals per year. If they are interested in attending more festivals, they often paddle with our other JDBC teams.
For information on joining any of our teams, please contact Marty Millard at 904-536-3475 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
