Teams are made up of 18 to 25 people of all ages. The dragon boat team has 20 paddlers seated in rows of 2 with a drummer sitting in the bow to keep the pace even. An experienced steersperson (provided by the festival) stands at the stern of the boat to guide the boat straight down the race course.
