With no experience needed – just loads of enthusiasm – The 25th Jersey Dragon Boat Festival is a fantastic event for groups of friends and colleagues, where you can expect to enjoy a fun day out with a great carnival atmosphere, fun, laughter, and friendly competition. Your team will take charge of a 40ft canoe-like dragon boat, ornately carved with a dragon’s head and tail, paddling hard to clock the best time for each heat while attempting to become a finalist. All focus is on the drummer, keeping all paddlers in time, while they paddle with all their might to cross the finish line. “The challenge is not so much the paddling technique, but in trying to synchronise with the other paddlers in your boat.”
