Dragon Boat Race

Our seventh annual Dragon Boat Racing event took place on Saturday 11th July 2015; the next boat race will be on Saturday 16th July 2016. The aim is for teams to raise money for their favoured charities and in previous years the event has raised well over £65,000 for charities and community groups.

The essential points are:-

* it's a lot of fun - teams that took part previously want to do it again

* it's a great 'team building' event

* teams raise money for charity through sponsorship

* no experience is required - tuition is given before the start of your first race

* everything is provided including the use of a team tent for the day - bring some spare dry clothes in case you get wet

* there are up to 17 persons in a dragon boat (16 paddlers and 1 drummer), but you can race with a crew of 13 (12 paddlers plus a drummer)

* each team has a minimum of 3 races

* there are medals to be won and an award for the best fancy dressed crew.

The event takes place in Monkton Park, Chippenham, at the same time as "Art in the Park" family fun day. In addition there will be a beer tent, food and games for spectators and crews when they are not paddling.
