Thank you SO much to everyone who got involved in our first ever Dragon Boat Race!

Get ready to Race!

We are so excited to get racing with our SECOND Dragon Boat Race! Dragon boating is a fun-filled, adrenaline pumping, water sports activity and is quickly becoming one of the most loved water sports across the world.

You and your team will race through the waters of Queens Dock, Liverpool. in large canoe-like vessel, ornately decorated with a dragon’s head and tail, all in support of the Clatterbridge Cancer Charity.

A team requires 17 members. 16 rowers who will sit in pairs and paddle together in multiple races across the day, competing to win the 1st place trophy. Each boat will also need a drummer whose job it is to keep the rest of the team in unison.

Dragon Boating is a sport for all abilities and no experience is required. You will receive full training, safety briefings and support on the day, from the fantastic Amathus Dragon Boat Club, who will supply you with all the equipment needed.

Fancy dress encouraged – we look forward to seeing you all on the day!
