With just over 6 weeks to go until this year’s Lincoln Dragon Boat Race, plans are in full swing ahead of the big day!

The spectacular event, taking place on Saturday 17th June, has become one of the biggest in the City’s event calendar, attracting hundreds of spectators and competitors on the day along the Brayford Waterfront.

This year the event is raising money for Lincolnshire’s first responders LIVES and already nearly 20 teams have signed up to take part on the day.

There is still plenty of time to raise a team and join in the fun! So, get your team of up to 10 paddlers, plus a drummer, together and get ready to battle it out in ornate 30-foot Chinese dragon boats.

The event promises to be colourful and great fun, no previous experience is required, just plenty of team spirit!

As well as the boat racing there will also be plenty of family activities, food and drink stalls along the Brayford Waterfront for the whole family to enjoy.

Teams will be encouraged to raise money for LIVES through sponsorship and fundraising;

Kirsty Raywood from LIVES; said

“We are delighted to have received such an excellent response to our call for crews from local businesses across the region. The Dragon Boat Race promises to be a great day out and will entice some healthy competition between local businesses in order to raise these vital funds to keep our Emergency Responders on the road and continue saving lives in Lincolnshire.”
