    Fun fact: The EDBF was founded by five countries (Netherlands, Sweden, Italy, United Kingdom and Germany). The traditional dragon boat festival takes place on the 5th day of the 5th month. Coincidence or not? ☺

    European Dragon Boat Federation added 5 new photos.
    At the EDBF Convention in Belgrade we decided to run a competition to design a new logo for the EDBF. We would be most grateful if you would share this message with your dragon boat family as we may have some budding designers out there. Alternatively go to our Facebook page "European Dragon Boat Association" and share our message. All logos are to be submitted to secretary@edbf.org by 31/12/17.

      European Dragon Boat Federation Times keep changing and innovation is a regular feaure of our mission. We love the old EDBF logo. It was designed by our friend Fabio Masi in 1990. Today we should have new ideas, all togheter with the Dragon Boat Community of Europe, starting from a new Logo to represent our wish to achieve progress and promote innovation for a rejuvenation of our sport and for a susteinable long term growth.
