SUNDAY 14 JULY 2019
Kung Hei Choi - Here come the Dragons!
Totnes welcomes the return to the River Dart of one of the most
exciting water sports in the world - Dragon Boat Racing.
It is your chance to have great fun on the river with friends, family
and work colleagues, and at the same time
raising funds for local charities to become local heroes.
Authentic Dragon Boats with experienced helm and all necessary equipment
(including the drum) supplied.
Fancy dress optional but encouraged!
Raise Funds for Charity
Have you got a charity you love to champion?
Use the Dragon Boat Race to support the causes that are personal to you,
or, support the charities helped by Totnes Rotary – the choice is yours.
Great Team Building Exercise
A visually spectacular, colourful and exciting event for competitors which is
superb for team building - you have to work together!
2019 is the year of the Pig according to the Chinese calendar.
In Chinese culture the pig enjoys life, is energetic and enthusiastic with a great sense of humour and they take positions of power. Ideal characteristics for a dragon boat crew.
Great Spectacle on the River
Dragon Boat Racing has ancient Chinese origins and its history has been traced back more than 2000 years. Enjoy watching teams battle it out on the River Dart to the rhythmic beat of the drum, known as the heartbeat of the boat.
Great Day Out for for all the Family
There will be all day entertainment on Longmarsh.
Enjoy the live race commentary, food, drink, entertainment and much more.
Cheer your favourites on to win and watch them roar to the finish line!
(Keeping an eye out for any actual dragons!)
Join us with your family and make a day of it.
