We are repeating the success from last year and are hereby inviting you to the 2nd Annual Nordic Dragon Boat Tournament! Get ready to challenge your colleagues and Nordic friends to find out which Nordic country has the best dragon boat team!

On the morning of June 15th 2019, 20 teams from the Nordic community in Beijing will have the chance to compete against each other for the title of Nordic Champion! This is a great opportunity to brand your company and at the same time take part in a fun activity with your team before summer vacation starts. Dragon boat racing welcomes all ages and fitness levels, so don't hesitate and join in on all the fun! Further information will be given to each captain before the tournament, so choose your captain wisely!

As more teams are joining the competition, the Nordic Dragon Boat Tournament is scaling up, and will this year take place at the Grand Canale in Tongzhou, only 30 minutes from central Beijing.
