What is Dragon Boating?

A dragon Boat is a long narrow boat which holds up to 20 people. Paddlers sit in pairs and face towards the bow of the boat, with 1 drummer and 1 steerer or helm at the rear of the boat.  The drummer leads the paddlers throughout the race with the rhythmic beating of a drum to indicate the timing and frequency of paddling strokes.

It is suitable for all ages and abilities and creates a great team spirit.

How much does it cost?
