Since 2007, under the direction and management of the Philadelphia Dragon Boat Association, the IDBR introduces, coaches, and races teams of 20 novice or experiencedsitemap paddlers in atags three-heat Dragon Boat Regatta (500 Meter Distance).  Paddlers from near and far have come to Philadelphia to join us in this day-long, family-friendly event.

DCH Racing I - 2013 Champs!


The regatta is organized for the purposes of fostering enjoyment of this team-building posts activity, raising funds for local charities, plus continued funding and support for Team USA, the 2011 IDBF Nation's Cup World Champions!


No experience is necessary, as registered teams will receive 3 free 1-hour practice sessions, coached and steered by members of the US National Dragon Boat Racing Team.


In 2013 we had 70 teams competing in the regatta - don't be left standing on the shore in 2014.


Congratulations to DCH Racing for taking the 2013 IDBR Grand Final, and the first ever Peter H. Kiliani Championship Trophy!
