Meet the Dragons! - Try paddling for FREE!
Get to meet some of the team as we take you through the basics and show you the paddling technique. We'll paddle in short bursts to avoid getting too hot. The boat launches at 5:30pm, so come at least by 5:15pm to get set up. Bring: A big bottle of water, Suncream (If you have fair skin - Best to apply this 20 minutes before), Sports clothing you don't mind getting wet or sandy, Sunglasses (ideally cheap ones), A towel for your car seat, Toiletries and a change of clothes if you wish to change afterwards (we have shower / change facilities). Make sure you have confirmed your attendance with our team secretary Jim by 12pm on the day of the event. He can be contacted on phone / WhatsApp on [masked]

What we're about

Come down and try out dragon boating for free!

We're a friendly and social team, comprising paddlers of all nationalities, ages and fitness levels and we're looking for new paddlers who seek to improve their fitness as well as make new friends along the way.

Don't worry about the heat. This time of year our training is about technique and flexibility, rather than strength and endurance, so this is the ideal time to start!

Plus, you'll be pleased to find that away from all the concrete and with a sea breeze, it really is cooler down on the water.

We run practices throughout the week, not just during the advertised meetup times. You're welcome to attend any practice if the meetup time doesn't suit you. Just ask for more details and to book your place.
