Dragon Boat Racing

30 or 40 feet long, 10 or 20 paddlers, with a helm steering and a team member sat at the front beating the timing on a big drum. How much more exciting can it get?

Most importantly, a body covered in scales, an ornate dragon's head on the front and tail on the rear.

From two boats racing side by side, up to 6 boats with just a couple of metres between each one. What better way to raise funds for your charity, or to get your employees and associates working as a close knit team?

Our experienced and British Dragonboat Association Qualified Helms will give a full safety briefing, then get the teams out on the water for some training before going head to head against other teams. The key to Dragon Boat racing is timing, which makes this a superb team building activity. The better the timing of the whole team, the faster the boat goes.

A day could be split with other activities to make a full teambuild day, or why not have an exclusive dragon boat event? On a normal day teams would expect to take part in 3 heats with the best 8 teams going into 2 semi-finals, then a grand 4 boat final. The heats could be on either a short course (approx 250 mtr) or a long course
(approx 450 mtr). Pinnacle Challenge will provide everything for the event.

We will ensure your chosen site is suitable or will be able to recommend an alternative, if not. From then we will write a bespoke risk assessment accompanied by our insurance details. On the day we will provide all equipment including:- Paddles and Buoyancy Aids, Instruction, Boat Marshalling, Safety boat cover, A Race control centre in a marquee and a PA system to call teams to the loading area and commentate on the racing.

Doesn't that sound more fun than a day in the office?
