Event Details

Barbados has been chosen for the location for the inaugural, revolutionary, team racing concept - the Dragon World Championships.  The first ever dedicated paddleboard team racing event.

This event will be held in partnership with Red Paddle Co. Racing and the Barbados Tourism Marketing Inc., and will take place from 28th to 30th October, 2017 in Carlisle Bay.  The Championships will be the climax to a busy calendar of Dragon World Series events taking place across the globe during 2017.

With the action taking place over the course of three days, The Dragon World Championships will be unlike any SUP event you’ve ever experienced, mixing fast, fun racing with a party vibe like no other.  Each race will vary in length and format, and has been designed to test team camaraderie, co-ordination, and determination as much as flat out speed and power. There will be several divisions enabling people of all ages and abilities to take part including, mixed, women’s, men’s and family team categories. With celebrations and entertainment throughout the day and running on late into the night, the Championships are set to be the ultimate paddleboard event.

There is no qualification needed to compete in the Dragon World Championships, instead there is the simple requirement that any team who enters must be on a Red Dragon and have competed in a regional Dragon World Series event. Teams will then battle it out over the weekend to be crowned the Dragon World Champions and take home the glory of becoming the world’s greatest inflatable SUP racing team!

To kick start the racing on Sunday 29th and in addition to the main event there will be a 10km downwind race aptly named, The Dragon Run. The race will be open to experienced teams only, who will battle it out through rough seas and strong currents to be crowned the victors.
It’s time to unleash the Dragon!
