Women's Division

LCCC Angels


The Angels will once again be representing the Lao Community Cultural Center (LCCC) in the 2016 Boun Suang Heua Festival of San Diego.  LCCC’s main goal is to unify, educate, preserve, and share our cultural traditions with the new generations and public within San Diego County.  What better way to accomplish this mission then to bring strong, motivated ladies together in an event that promotes a much loved and celebrated Lao tradition?  Even though the team is made up of new and veteran rowers, the ladies know the key to a successful race is working together as a team.  Go Angels!  Flap your wings synchronously!

Sweet Rice


On August 2015, Sweet Rice women’s team was created by 18 beautiful ladies that have the sweetest hearts you can imagine. They met at happy hour and decided to commit and joined forces to have fun (first and foremost). And to attempt to be synchronized on a dragon boat with one beat, one heart, one power. Go Team! The 18 members are beautiful inside and out in their own rights:  Born in different parts of the globe.  We have Laotian, Vietnamese, Chinese, Cambodian, Thai, Filipino, Portuguese, Polish, and Hawaiian.  All worked hard and became successful in their perspective careers with one common passion; they love to eat sweet rice.  Their commitment to do their best with smiling beautiful faces from start to finish is what our Sweet Rice team represents.

Peking University

Peking University (PKU) in Beijing is the first modern national university in China, and has consistently enjoyed its reputation as the most prestigious university in the country. PKU's alumni are all over the world; many found their new home in America's finest city.  San Diego Peking University Alumni Association (SDPKUAA), a 501(c)(3) organization, was established in 2010 with the purposes of connecting PKU alumni and serving the San Diego local communities, and has grown into a big happy family of over 200 PKU alumni, family and friends.  Because of dragon boat's deep roots in the Chinese culture, and its value as a team building vehicle, SDPKUAA started to organize dragon boat practices in 2015.  Our first race was the 6th Annual San Diego International Dragon Boat Race in September of 2015, where we finished 10th in place in the corporate division, and broke our own records.  Some of our finest paddlers also participated in the 2016 Long Beach Dragon Boat Festival and this time brought home a medal!  And, here we are, keep challenging ourselves, enjoying dragon boating and San Diego!
