Over 80 members strong, Bay Area Dragons (BAD) is a dragon boat racing team based out of Foster City in the beautiful San Francisco Bay Area. BAD, established in 1996, originated dragon boat racing in the Bay Area and, many years later, continues to seek out new racing destinations, having raced across North America and internationally. BAD most recently had the honor of competing at the 2008 Club Crew World Championships in Penang, Malaysia.
Our club is committed to growing the sport in the Bay Area, offering free dragon boat lessons every Saturday morning, and organizing the annual Paddle For Life (paddleforlife.org) corporate/non-profit cancer fundraiser and dragon boat race, raising over $20K in 2008. Come join us for a paddle! For more information, please visit bayareadragons.org.
