Dragon Boat Racing and the Cambridge Festival

Dragon boat racing is the fastest growing water activity in Britain today – as well as the most fun! Up to 10 people paddle each 30’ boat with a drummer at the front beating time and our helm at the tail steering a straight course. No previous experience is required, just plenty of team spirit!

The 16th Cambridge Dragon Boat Festival takes place on Saturday 12th September 2020 on the River Cam at Fen Ditton and more than 40 teams are expected to compete over the 200m race course, watched by several hundred spectators. As well as the exciting races, a range of bankside entertainment, food stalls and fun activities guarantee a fabulous day out for all the family!

Standard entry includes:

  • Dragon boats, qualified helms and all racing equipment
  • At least 3 races per crew
  • Music and entertainment
  • Souvenir programme
  • Trophies for the top three crews, the best-placed mixed crew (minimum 5 ladies), the crew raising the most money for ACT and the ‘best dressed’ crew
  • Medals for the top three crews
  • Special prize of a Champagne Punting Tour along the River Cam courtesy of Scudamore’s Punting Company for the crew raising the most money for ACT
