Seattle SAKE Paddling Club is gradually easing into back into our activities , and dragon boat paddling is now open for current and vaccinated members only. Should pandemic conditions continue to improve, we hope to be able to welcome visitors again soon.
Dragon Boating is Club SAKE’s primary paddle sport. It is a centuries-old sport that originated in China, and is one of the fastest-growing sports in the world. It is accessible to all people of all skill levels and physical abilities. It has been shown to be particularly beneficial to cancer survivors, for whom the built-in support system from the team environment is an important component, in addition to the physical activity. No experience is necessary to give it a try, and the club provides equipment for beginners.
