Dragon boat festival is one of our Penang State signature event. It is among the fastest growing water sports in this region. Dragon Boat festival has become a very popular corporate and charitable sport, during which friendship, strength and endurance are developed among the participants.

We believe in promoting Dragon Boat as a sports activitiies, we could introduce our culture and heritage to our local Penangites as well as foreign participants.

The 6th IDBF Club Crew World and the 8th Asian Dragon Boat Championships was held in Penang in 2008, producing the biggest Dragon Boat Championships so far held in Dragon Boat Sports with over 200 crews from 86 Clubs and 21 countries taking part.

Nearly 4000 competitors contested in the 50 competition class in the history of the dragon boat races.

With a large group of experienced IDBF Race Officials and a senior IDBF Race Official will be running the 30th Penang International Dragon Boat Festival 2009. Therefore, the Penang International Dragon Boat Festival (PIDBF) Organizing Committee cordially invites Crews from around the world to participate in the 30th Penang International Dragon Boat Festival 2009 (which is also recognized as an IDBF Affiliate Race of the dragon boat festivals).
