Our focus has primarily been strength and lifting in the gym, but I want everybody to add in a little more endurance training. This is because dragon boat racing is DOMINATED by cardio.
Studies (I have links, if you want them) show that 500m races in a dragon boat are 60% aerobic (cardio based) and 40% anaerobic (strength based). Even the 200-250m sprint is still 50/50!
