“Dragon Slayers” Win First Annual Carolina Beach Dragon Boat Regatta and Festival

The Winning Boat “Dragon Slayers”.

This past weekend Pleasure Island Hosted the First Annual Carolina Beach Dragon Boat Regatta and Festival. Hundreds of spectators came out to cheer on their favorite group that consisted of 13 teams including Island Men, Flashy Dragon Women, Team Coastwalk, Team Loggerheads, Jungle Beach Vikings, Sea Coast Warriors, Intracoastal’ Blazing Paddles, Draggin’ Slayers, One World Dragon Boat, Craige & Fox, Gibby’s Dock and Dine, The Lazy Hopping Witches and UMUC Virtual Dragons. There could only be one winner and this year the Island Montessori School’s “Dragon Slayers” took the win, team “One World Dragon Boat” took second place and UMUC Virtual Dragons came in third. Proceeds from this event will go directly to the Carolina Beach Volunteer Fire Department and the Got-Em-On-Live-Bait Club to help fund the club’s annual Disabled Sportsman’s Fishing Tournaments. Special Thanks to the Regatta and Festival Committee and all the volunteers who came out to help.
