In 2022, spurred by co-founder Nancy Goldenberg's passion for dragon boating, POBS formed an alumni Dragon Boat team. The team is coached by Outward Bound alum Dave Kunz, who was a member of Team USA for the dragon boat world championship in China 2017.
After holding an open call "info session" for any who might be interested, a team was formed from a mix of alumni, staff and board members, and several practices were held on the river before the big race day in June when the Independence Dragon Boat Regatta was held. At that event, the POBS Dragons won their first heat!
POBS Dragons win their first heat! June 2022
The process was repeated in 2023 and a new team was formed. We'll post race results here.
