Dragon Boat Racing and the Dragon Boat Challenge
Dragon Boat racing is an ancient Chinese tradition and the fastest growing water activity in Britain today – as well as the most fun! Up to 10 people paddle each boat with a drummer at the front beating time. A professional helm is provided to ensure a straight course is steered. No previous experience is required, just a sense of adventure, a desire to have fun and of course, plenty of team spirit!
The Rotary Dragon Boat Challenge of Northampton is held every July. The organisers hope that each year it's great fun to take part or watch and hope to raise as much money as possible for the Air Ambulance (WNAA) and Local Rotary Charities.
