Dragon boating arrived in California in 1983 when Singapore presented the City of San Diego with three dragon boats. Thirteen local teams competed for a berth to compete in Singapore the following year. Under the coaching of Rena and Egon Horcajo, Hanohano Outrigger Canoe Club won the coveted honor to compete in the 1984 World Invitational Dragon Boat races in Singapore. This team won that international competition, becoming the first non-Asian team to capture this impressive title.
