Join South Cerney's Annual Dragon Boat Race

29 July 2013

Every year at South Cerney, the team holds a Dragon Boat Event. As the outdoor centre is under new management, their team plans to make this year's event even bigger and better.

Organisations are being invited to enter either one or two teams, and what better way for Prospects colleagues to get fit and have fun than to enter its very own group or groups of Dragon Boat racers?

The day itself (Sunday 29th September) will be busy, loud and full of fun, with prizes for all and a shield engraved with the winning team's name. Some teams choose to paddle in fancy dress and raise money for charity in the process; others just enjoy the atmosphere and the fun of the day.

These fantastic boats they are 40ft long with a decorated dragons head and tail. Junior paddling teams consists of 21 people (20 paddlers & 1 drummer) and adult teams will consist of 16 paddlers and a drummer. A helmsman is supplied by the centre and will be responsible for steering the craft.

The price for the event is £100 per team. This works out at only £4.77 per young person and £5.88 per adult assuming full teams.
