Of course it is kind of a no-brainer that dragon boat paddling is a team sport. However, many active paddlers and certainly most people that have never paddled before tend to not realize how much this sport can do for any individual!
We are not talking about the tan you build up over a few training sessions in sunny weather on the water. Never mind the initial muscle ache, let alone the improvement of general fitness, stamina and health benefits. Even the instant huge social circle you gain when joining any team out there is not what we are referring to.
It is the experience of acting together and achieving something together as a team that makes all the difference and teaches you lessons for life (or reminds you of some important facts that you almost forgot)!
Look at a dragon boat team as if it were a team in your work place. No matter what your position among the group of people you work with, if you act out the prince or princess, the diva or star, if your ego goes overboard or you discriminate, your team will eventually fail and that means you will fail too.
Paddling in a dragon boat will tell you to respect every single member of your team.
Translate that back to your work place and it becomes very clear – the rules are pretty much the same.
That is why Event Paddling is a popular and often eye opening experience for corporate clients who book a boat (or two) and expose their staff to this out-of-the-office and out-of-the-box experience.
Ocean Five offers and organizes such corporate paddle events to anyone in Singapore, whether it is companies, clubs, schools, organizations, groups. We provide the hardware such as the boat, paddles, life vests and also the introduction, guidance and basic paddling technique. Of course there will be our experienced cox (the person who steers the boat) and our instructor to ensure that every event turns out a lasting experience combined with safe but invigorating fun.
