Charity Dragon Boat Race – 4 August 2018

St Neots Charity Dragon Boat Race to take place on Saturday 4 August 2018

Dragon Boat racing is an ancient Chinese tradition and the fastest growing water activity in Britain today. Up to 10 people paddle each 30′ boat with a drummer at the front beating in time and a helm at the tail steering a straight course. No previous experience is required, just plenty of team spirit.

St Neots Town Council has teamed up with the Rotary Club of St Neots St Mary’s and St Neots Dragon Boat Team for a fifth year to bring this fun, team event to a wider audience, enabling people of all ages and fitness levels to give the sport a try whilst having an enjoyable day out with friends and family and at the same time raising funds for local charities.
