Rivulet™ Artisan Pecan Liqueur Sponsors First Annual Louisville Dragon Boat Festival
Louisville, Kentucky – September 10, 2014 – Rivulet Artisan Pecan Liqueur is pleased to announce its sponsorship of the first annual Louisville Dragon Boat Festival and Race, which will be held at at Waterfront Park downtown on the Ohio River on Saturday, September 13, 2014. Teams of twenty-one members will compete in this exciting race for a chance at winning the Rivulet Cup!
Although Dragon Boat racing began over 2300 years ago in China, its exact origins aren’t as easily pinpointed. Races take place with teams of at least twenty members that paddle in unison in brightly colored and hand carved boats, all the while led by a drummer to keep the team focused. James M. Marshall, the founder of Rivulet Artisan Pecan Liqueur, is very familiar with Dragon Boat racing from his time living and traveling throughout the Asia-Pacific region. “Dragon Boat racing is a spectacular team sport that fosters camaraderie, strength, and endurance among the teams. Rivulet, as a brand that celebrates excellence, is proud to be involved as the title sponsor of the race. We look forward to the winners toasting their victory with Rivulet,” he said.
Dragon Boats have been racing competitively as an international sport since 1976 beginning in Hong Kong. Since then world-wide regional leagues and international governing bodies have formed to advance the sport on every continent. Dragon Boat Racing is currently not only the fastest growing amateur water sport in North America (including the US individually), but world-wide with over 6 million participants entering multiple races throughout the year. It is said to have “a visceral feel that appeals to everyone.” The races are a colorful spectacle, with at least two boats and usually four or more competing against each other over distances from 200 to 2000 meters and longer. Not only are strength, endurance and skill important but teamwork and harmony of purpose. Consequently, it has become extremely popular as a corporate team-building activity
