Mekong Dragons has come a long way from its more leisurely beginnings, becoming a serious contender locally, and whose recognition outside of its home base it’s growing and becoming associated with premier teams.

The commitment, discipline and training grew with the desire to strive and become gold medalists and trophy winners. Under the continued direction of coach Enoy (member of the USA dragon boat team), the Mekong Dragons team became the overall winner of the Atlanta Hong Kong Festival for the first time in 2015, and kept placing among the top teams in all races since, then taking the trophy back home again in 2019.

Unfortunately, 2020 proved to be a difficult year as the pandemic kept the team from training on the water. However, in 2021 we came back with renewed desires and it became a milestone of a year, as the team traveled outside of the state of Georgia for two races: Charlotte in October (getting the silver medals) and Lake Hernando in November (placing in fifth place, in a very competitive race).

In 2022, under the direction of coach Vilay and the collaboration of our veteran coach Enoy, we have earned our first gold medals and trophy of the year at the Gainesville Dragon Boat Challenge, followed by gold medals and overall winner trophies at the Cumberland River Compact Dragon Boat Festival (Nashville, TN) and in the Lake Hernando Dragon Boat Festival (Lake Hernando, FL).

In 2023 we are looking forward to participating in 5 races, all which are listed in our Events Schedule page, where you can find the most up-to-date information, including our participation at the 2023 USDBF Club Crew National Championships.
