Want to try Dragonboating?

Dragon boating is suitable for children and adults alike from 9 to 99 years old. Some of our members started after a school trip/scouts trip dragon boating. Some started later in life. Some came down as family groups with mum and dad paddling alongside sons and daughters. Whatever you age you are welcome to come and give it a go!
