Dragon Boat Festival

Bewl Water

Sat 7th Sep

Crews of 16 paddlers (plus a drummer) race in Chinese-style Dragon Boats over a 250-metre course. Crews do not need to be super fit or skilled to be successful - all that's required is teamwork and a good sense of fun!

Dragon Boat racing is steeped in mythology and has been around for many thousands of years in China. Popular legend has it that through the racing, Chinese dragons would bring rain. We hope this will not be the case in September.

The racing is run by Bewl Water and Dragon Boat Events Ltd provide the boats, helms, safety equipment, buoyancy aids and rescue boats.
