Corporate Dragon Boat Racingdragon boat racing london

Dragon Boat racing is a wonderfully colourful and exciting way of getting staff out of the office, in a highly competitive, adrenalin pumping team or company activity.  Perfect for competitors for those fast and furious bursts of energy over short distances, but also fantastic for the spectators.

We can offer this highly historical and ceremonial way to entertain and engage staff  for large groups at various sites, across London and surrounding areas. Each team will be given a motivational safety briefing by one of our fully qualified helms before taking their seats in our colourful dragon boats. Teams will then have the chance to take part in a number of head to head races against their colleagues during the afternoon. Teams can refuel with a half way refreshment break to get ready for another exciting session of races. The times are accumulated throughout using our racing programme which will capture the all important photo finishes!        

With at least two boats competing against each other over short distances, strength, endurance and skill are important, but communication, harmony and team spirit are as well. This all becomes apparent when everybody in the dragon boats are paddling to the rhythm of the drummer. With its strong visual impact, Dragon Boat Racing is a superb spectator sport.

Corporate Dragon Boat Racing

Dragon Boats are just a spectacle in themselves. The origins of Dragon boat racing came from China over 2500 years ago where villagers would come together to race against other villagers.

The Dragon Boats had majestic, ornate carvings of dragon’s head that led the way through the water in celebration. Each dragon boat has the all-important drummer to beat the rhythm, plus the workers, the paddlers. That drummer is the heartbeat of the dragon boat who co-ordinate the frequency and synchronicity of the paddlers. 

Dragon Boat racing is an ideal event for a whole company either competing as inter-department teams, or bringing different staff members from all parts of the organisation joining together to create better communication within the workplace. Our Dragon Boat events utilise high tech programming to ensure participants take part in the most competitive races yet! Our experienced race director will be on hand throughout the races with exciting running commentary of the action on the water.

One Review for Corporate Dragon Boat Racing

James Duggan

My team were looking for a fun and competitive event for our summer celebrations this year.

Dragon boat racing seemed to be the perfect event for us, and it delivered!

Spending the afternoon outdoors racing dragon boats took the team out of their comfort zone and they definitely built up an appetite for the BBQ.
