What is Dragon Boating?

Dragon Boating is a sport that started in China some 2,000 years ago and came to the UK in 1996. Originally introduced as a community sports activity, it has now developed into an exciting high adrenaline team sport where teams of up to seventeen people (sixteen paddlers and a drummer) work together in unison in order to get their boat down the course and over the finishing line as fast as possible.

Dragon boating is quick to pick up and very progressive in nature and most importantly, no pervious experience is necessary as full training and ongoing instruction is given on the day. For this reason, it is ideal as both a charity fund raising activity and for Corporate Events / team building. The helms each have extensive dragon boating experience (often ten years or more) and each want their team to win their race! The day finished with an award ceremony where specially cast dragon boat medals were presented to each member of the top three teams.
