In California, I was a member of the Dragon Max team in Berkeley, California, and then of the Dragon Flyers in Alameda. In Berkeley, I was one of three team members involved in leading the volunteer effort to restore two of our boats back to near-original condition. During waterfront events in the Bay Area, the dragon boat teams take hundreds of people out on the water, often given them their first experience in a boat. It’s a great sport for teambuilding as well as for pure fun and exercise.
In March 2017, I was appointed Team Manager for the Dragon Rays, located at Pioneer Valley Riverfront Club in Springfield, Massachusetts, where I am also a member of the Masters Rowing Team.
