Corporate Dragon Boat Racing
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 groups of 30 to 120 at various sites, with our location on the outskirts of London being our most popular. Each team will be given a motivational training briefing by one of our fully qualified helms before taking part in a 20 minute training session to get you accustomed to the ancient sport.
Teams will then have the chance to take part in a number of 300 meter timed races during the afternoon with opportunities to swap crews if required. Teams will refuel with a half way refreshment break to get ready for another exciting sessions of races. The times are accumulated during the session followed by the much awaited prize giving.
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. This exciting activity will definitely build your appetite up for a delicious two course summer BBQ in our outdoor eating area.
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. This event is all about team work!! It’s all about getting the paddles into the water together at the right moment to create the fastest speed. Within this very short space of time, i.e. 200 metres which literally takes minutes to complete, it’s the team working as one, plus the team with the most stamina and will to win, wins. However, it’s all about everyone working as one, to successfully navigate a straight and fast line to the winning line.
