Dragon Boat Beaufort's boat is here

Dragon Boat Beaufort
The new boat.

Weighting in at 550 pounds and 48 feet, the Dragon Boat Beaufort team officially has its own boat.

Look for a launch party on July 28 at the Port Royal Marina and the boat to run during the Water Festival from July 13-22.

The Island Packet caught up with the team and has more about the boat and fundraising for it.

Dragon boat 20-person crews often raise money for cancer patient services and offer a chance for cancer patients and survivors to compete to raise fitness and mental spirits. 

Learn more about the team in our past coverage or on their website.
