Lincoln Dragon Boat Race
Dragon Boat Racing is an ancient Chinese tradition and over the last few years has become the fastest growing water activity in Britain today.

In 2017 we doubled the number of teams and we doubled the amount of money we raised – a fantastic triumph for the second year!
Highway Five-O (Lincolnshire County Council Highways Alliance) were crowned the 2017 Champions- beating second place by just 1.40 seconds!!!
2018 victory was secured by local construction firm Belton Construction. The day was a great event and the sun was shining all day! We raised just under £7,000 for three local charities, LIVES, St Barnabas Hospice and The Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance.
Our biggest event yet! 16 teams battled it out on the Brayford Waterfront and Belton Construction were once again crowned winners! The event was really well supported and just under £7,000 was raised for The Lincolnshire & Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance and Nomad Part of YMCA Lincolnshire.
The Dragon Boat Race brings great excitement and colour to one of the most beautiful parts of the city and attracted scores of visitors last year. We hope this will become an annual feature of the city’s events calendar and continue to grow year on year.
Richard Baxter, Events & Promotions Manager at Lincoln BIG
The event was a great success, we had lots of support on the day and it was a lot of fun for the competing teams. We were really pleased to raise money for the local charities and hope to make 2019 a bigger and better event.

The event was exceptionally organised with a fantastic atmosphere, a great fun team event and we are looking forward to defending our title again for next year!
