The Bath Dragon Boat Race 2017

Sunday 10th September 2017

10:30am – 4:30pm

We are excited to announce that this year we will be hosting The Bath Dragon Boat Race!

Dragon Boat Racing is an ancient Chinese tradition and the fastest growing water activity in Britain today – as well as the most fun! Up to 11 people will paddle each 30′ boat with a drummer up front beating time and a helm at the tail steering a straight course.

Who will be taking part?

The minimum age is 16 and no previous experience is necessary, just plenty of team spirit.

Crews will comprise of 8-10 paddlers plus a drummer. Crews can be mixed, all female or all male and organisations may enter more than one crew. After all, doesn’t everyone like a bit of friendly competition in the workplace?

Crews will battle it out over the 200m course, watched by crowds of spectators. Fancy dress is optional, but recommended!

What they’ll be raising money for

All the funds raised will go towards our Wizzybug Loan Scheme which provides fun, powered wheelchairs to disabled children under 5 in the UK.

If you have any questions, please email thedragon@designability.org.uk or call 01225 824103.

BUILD YOUR CREW, GRAB YOUR PADDLES AND GO FOR GLORY!
