Join the ASNC Young Professionals Group for a weekend of world-class dragon boat racing on the San Francisco Bay as a member of the YPG Dragonflies!

Hosted on Treasure Island, the San Francisco International Dragon Boat Festival is the largest competitive dragon boat festival in the United States. In addition to the boat races, the Festival also includes cultural performances, activities for all ages, and the Bay Area's favorite food trucks.

Teams are made up of a minimum of 20 paddlers, with at least 40% women.

There will be 3 practice sessions held at Lake Merced before the race day event. Dates for training will be sent to the Dragonflies paddlers at a later date. Participation in practices is not required but highly encouraged!
