Dragon Boat Racing in Port Isaac

Thursday, June 26, 2014

Dragon boats are set to take to the high seas this August in a weekend of fierce competition.

From Saturday 2nd to Sunday 3rd August, dragon boats will paddle across the bay in Port Isaac in a series of adrenaline-fuelled races.

Each team must have a minimum of 17 members and a maximum of 20, and is guaranteed to enjoy at least three races.

There is a £350 entry fee, with proceeds going towards the RNLI and Children’s Hospice South West.

Dragon boat racing is always a faced-paced event and the weekend promises to be great fun.

For those who haven’t experienced it before, dragon boats are large canoe-like vessels with dragon’s heads and tails carved at each end.

Each boat has a drummer to help the paddlers stay in unison and a professional helmsperson in the stern to guide the boat.

If you would like to enter a team, you need to contact Dean (07875 212329) or Mike (07718 393087).

Or if you prefer to keep your feet on dry land, you can always cheer the racers on from the beach.
