Dragon Boat Race

Date: 10th September 2021

Air Ambulance NI is launching its inaugural Dragon Boat Race Championship on Friday 10 September 2021.  The charity is offering your workplace or family the chance to be a ‘Dragon’ and paddle up the River Lagan pacing yourself against competitors to win the coveted overall champion cup for fastest time.   

The Dragon Boats hold 12-20 rowers plus one optional drummer. All skill levels and physiques can paddle, making it the ultimate team building sport or fun day out!  All safety elements are covered with each Dragon boat having at the helm your qualified instructor.  Who will be on your team and will your time trials be good enough for you to make the semi finals and final? 

Making the event even more fun will be a range of prizes for Best Fancy Dress, Best Team Spirit and Fundraising Champions.  After your racing you will enjoy a BBQ and soft drink with medals provided for all participants! 

Registration costs £500 per team (that’s £25 per person for a team of 20).

Each team is encouraged to raise £1500 to keep the Helicopter Emergency Medical Service able to reach critically ill and injured patients and will save lives, brains and limbs! You can set up a JustGiving page to take online donations by clicking here.
