Totnes Dragon Boats

See the 2019 photos in the Gallery


  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.
