Salem is the city of peace and we paddle for peace.
Dragonboating. Two minutes of absolute perfection in form, focus and physical, energetic unison, 22 people on a 44-foot-long boat. Hours of practice at ridiculous times, whatever the weather. Driven, dedicated, and determined. The world's fastest growing, most popular team sport, with over 2500 teams and 75000 members - and right here in Salem, the dragon has bitten our paddlers. Those paddlers are the members of the Peace Dragon Warriors, Salem's premier dragon boat racing team.
