Join us for the Bath Dragon Boat Race on 9 September 

Bath Riverside

After a hugely successful Dragon Boat event last year - the Bath Dragon Boat Challenge is back bigger and even better for 2018!

Team SRA are boldly challenged to take up their paddles and race against the other dragons in the Bath dragon boat race across 200m course on 9 September! 

 Team SRA with lots of smiles at the beginning of last year's race.

 Things got a little more serious, when the heat was on. We only narrowly missed the semi-finals by seconds - probably because the hats weren't terribly aero-dynamic!

Required

  • No experience!
  • A sense of humour - this event is brilliant fun!
  • The ability to eat lots of pizza (or similar!)
  • Someone to keep an eagle eye on David, who tried to tip the boat last year!
  • A kind heart and lots of friends - lots of fundraising required!

Get involved

  • In the crew: we need a minimum of 8 people to participate and ideally 12+ would be better to allow for changes in the team over the 3 heats. 
  • As a spectator: come and enjoy the atmosphere and cheer the team on.
  • Fundraising: the event supports two local charities: Designability and The Mountain Way. SRA have paid the entry donation of £500. On top of this we need to raise as much money as possible with an additional £600 set as a minimum target by the organisers. Karen will set up a Just Giving page to help with our fundraising efforts. 

Crew members - please sign-up

  • You will receive an email shortly with more details. Please vote YES or NO to joining as a crew member.
