Dragon Boat Beaufort
The new boat.
Weighting in at 550 pounds and 48 feet, the Dragon Boat Beaufort team officially has its own boat.
Look for a launch party on July 28 at the Port Royal Marina and the boat to run during the Water Festival from July 13-22.
The Island Packet caught up with the team and has more about the boat and fundraising for it.
Dragon boat 20-person crews often raise money for cancer patient services and offer a chance for cancer patients and survivors to compete to raise fitness and mental spirits.
