Bucks County Dragon Boat Association (BCDBA) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization created to promote the sport of Dragon Boating in Bucks County and the surrounding areas.

Our Vision

Dragon Boating is our passion. Jacquelyn Wetzel and the late Laurie McHugh started Bucks County Dragon Boat Association in 2012 with the vision of being a non-exclusive club with a welcoming and encouraging atmosphere for all levels of dragon boat racing.  There is much more to this sport than just a great day on the water. Dragon boat racing is about teamwork, camaraderie, excitement, competition, family and community.  Our favorite thing about dragon boating is seeing someone try it for the very first time. They get off the boat with a huge smile and can’t wait to get back on the boat again. We call it “getting bit by the dragon.” Teammates have become our family. We hosted the first ever Bucks County Dragon Boat Festival on Lake Luxembourg at Core Creek Park in Langhorne in September 2015.

Our vision for the future is seeing all of our members excel and achieve the level of success they envision for themselves in both dragon boating and/or outrigger paddling. We are very proud to have Bucks County Dragon Boat members selected to the US National Dragon Boat team in both 2017 and 2019.
