Do you have what it takes to be Dragon Boat Champions 2024?

If so, join us for some fun on Saturday 8th June from 10am – 4pm at Poole Park and help make a difference to the lives of adults with learning disabilities at the Stable Family Home Trust.

Share the experience with your colleagues & friends and race against other companies and competitors. Whether you are looking for a team-building exercise, a networking opportunity, to push your competitive limits or just a fun day out, this is how you can achieve it whilst raising money for a great cause.

No experience is required and all you have to do is turn up, as Dragon Boat Events do the rest for you. Maximum numbers per boat is 17 people – 16 paddlers and 1 drummer per boat, or a minimum of 12 paddlers and 1 drummer per boat. The maximum number you can have per team is 20 people which includes 3 reserves. Each team will have a minimum of 3 heats throughout the day and then a grand FINAL for the top fastest qualifying teams with a trophy and medals for the winners and runner ups.

Registration cost is £400 per boat and we ask every team who has entered to raise some money for the charity. You can do so by setting up your own fundraising page or just make a one off donation.
