Why You Should Join Our Team

We are residents of The Villages retirement community of Central Florida, the largest active retirement community in the world.  


We live by the proverb:

“We don’t stop playing because we grow old.

  We grow old because we stop playing.”

                                    George Bernard Shaw


And Play we do!  We are a highly competitive team that loves Dragon Boating and we work hard to achieve excellent results.  Many of us are retired Marines and all of us have a need for speed.   We believe in keeping our standards high and our ranks small.
The Leathernecks,  formally the Leathernecks Gold is a new team that was formed in January 2009.  In that short time we have already proven that we are a team to be reckoned with.  We are a group of highly motivated paddlers as defined by the amount of time we put into our training routine.


But hard work isn’t everything.  We are a family first, we love to party and get together often.  The camaraderie within our team is just amazing.   It’s a great family sport where your kids and grandkids can come and watch, and be awed at what getting older should be about.


If you like the outdoors and enjoy canoeing, kayaking, sailing, or just being on the water,  you will love Dragon Boat Racing.  The adrenalin rush when the starting whistle goes off is just not to be believed.   


We are ”Leathernecks ”,  “Grand Masters”  in the sport of Dragon Boat Racing.  We would love to have you join us and see what the sport is all about.
