Dragon Boat Challenge
June 4 @ 9:00 am - 4:30 pm
JUNE 4, 9:00 AM – 4:30 PM
The art of human-powered watercraft racing is returning to Preston on Sunday 4th June 2017.
Join fellow corporate competitors as we take to the waters of Europe’s largest inland docks, to battle it in the Chamber’s ‘Dragon Boat Challenge’.
The competition will take place across the day, with teams vying for victory in a tournament style competition.
Each crew will consist of twenty people with a maximum of sixteen rowers, plus a drummer, taking to your boat for each race.
We’ll supply you with a professional helmsman who will steer for you, take care of all the arrangements, the boats, the order of racing, the necessary equipment, instructions and safety briefings. All you need to do is field a team and have a desire to take home the trophy!
Participants are welcome to bring along their own refreshments, banners and team gazebo (no larger than 6m x 3m).
Please encourage non-competing members of your workplace to attend the event and cheer you on; it really does help.
Entry is priced per team and limited to 20 teams.
