On the Sunday 10th June, the Marlow Town Regatta & Festival‘s enclosure will once again be taken over by the Marlow Dragon Boat Festival. Featuring over 20 teams of friends, family, team mates and colleagues, the event is carried out in a great atmosphere and is a fantastic day out for participants and supporters young and old, where many also raise money for a local charity, school or group.

There are still a few places left, so don’t miss the boat and enter now!

Below is some of the feedback from last year’s participants highlighting what a good time was had

“Very well organised, very enthusiastic instructors and staff and would definitely recommend this event to anyone. Great fun and a great day out, many thanks .”

“Thanks for a great day  shame about the weather but we loved it and were superbly delighted to win!!!! not expected at all so all went home buzzing last night!!!  We will be back next year and request Gordon, the helmsman/trainer again  please pass on thanks to him as well.  Thanks again for a fun event”. Winners of the Ladies Race

“Thanks for a great day yesterday in Marlow  even better as we won this year!” Winners of the Open Race

“Thanks for everything it was great fun despite the weather and I am sure the team will be back next year .”

The team can be an  Open Team  (mix of male and female), all  Ladies Team  or a  Junior Team  (12-18 year olds). The price to enter for a team of up to 15 people is from £350 (6-10 paddlers & a drummer are required for each race).  Teams are guaranteed a minimum of 3 races and prizes are available for the first, second & third placed teams as well as the best dressed & named teams on the day.  Each entry package includes a training session before the day to allow teams to get in some practice whether they have been in a dragon boat before or are first timers.
