Dragon boat racing is one of the world’s oldest sports, originating in China over 2,500 years ago. It’s a fantastic way to team build, for family groups, corporate teams, community groups and friends. All while showing support for your local NHS charity.

The event takes place on Saturday 18th May 2024 at Fairhaven Lake, Lytham St Annes, at 10am-4pm. Each boat consists of 17 team members, one of whom is a drummer. The event is open to anyone over the age of 16 (the drummer must be over the age of 12).

Places are just £25 per person, plus a suggested minimum sponsorship of £50. Prices are set per team at £450 for a boat of 17. Team captains must register their team using the booking form below. You can pay in full or pay a £100 deposit to register your team today.
