Make a splash this summer and join us on Thursday 7 July from 4pm-8pm at Surrey Quays, Docklands for our brand new fun-filled event, our Dragon Boat Race!

About this event


Originating in ancient China, Dragon boating is an exhilarating, adrenaline boosting, water sports activity. Teams compete in Dragon Boats, which are similar to large canoes, fitted with dragons heads and tails. Our Dragon Boat Race is ideal for corporate teams providing the ultimate team building platform to boost morale and network with those a like. Dragon Boat Racing is a great sport that requires communication and team work to be successful.

Participants will enjoy complimentary food & drink, a raffle and of course the unmissable main event, the Dragon Boat tournament - all in the scenic surroundings of Surrey Quays Dock.

Each team will compete with 11 participants (10 paddlers and 1 drummer) and will receive safety briefings before entering the tournament to be crown Hospice UK's first ever Dragon Boat champions!
