A dragon boat is a human powered boat (paddled water craft) traditionally made of teak wood to various designs and shapes. A boat typically holds a crew of 20 paddlers, 1 drummer seated at the bow of the boat, and a steerer. Found throughout Asia, Africa and the Pacific Islands, the dragon boat is part of the family of Traditional Long Boats, now used in the team sport of dragon boat racing.

The Singapore River Regatta is one of the highlights in the dragon-boating calendar. Held annually and always with huge fanfare, it is an event designed to foster participants' teamwork and spirit. It also celebrates the achievements that Singapore has made in the arena of water sports and the hard work contributed by every single sportsman to do their respective teams proud.
