Exciting for both participants and spectators alike, dragon boat racing is one of the fastest growing aquatic sports in the world. In Tequesta, a co-ed team who call themselves Blazing Paddles welcomes memebers of all ages and walks of life to come try the fun sport for free.
The team urges that even though they’ve won numerous honors including a world record, most members have joined with zero paddling experience, and no equipment or experience is necessary to get started.
Started by Captain Will Murphy in 2003, Blazing Paddles has members from Hollywood all the way to Port St. Lucie who compete in dragon boat, canoe, and a variety in other water sports in the community. If you would like to give it a shot, all you have to do is have a good attitude, clothes and shoes that can get wet, and bring a bottle of water.
The team meets invites you to join on a Sunday Funday paddle in November or December, which meets at 8 am at Tanah Keeta Scout Reservation.
Tanah Keeta Scout Reservation is located at 8501 SE Boy Scout Road in Tequesta Florida.
