Dragon Boat Race

When: Thursday 28th July 5pm – 9pm

Where: Paddington Basin, Merchant Square W2 1AJ

The Dragon Boat Race has been happening on the Paddington Basin canal for over 10 years. Every year, people from all over the Paddington area come together for a friendly competition to help raise essential funds for COSMIC charity.

This is your chance to get involved in a fun and unique event to support COSMIC. Challenge your team, colleagues, friends or family to race! You can enter in teams of a maximum of 10 rowers per boat plus a drummer to motivate your team. There will also be a helm which you will not need to provide, and all of the boats and necessary equipment will be provided too.

The registration fee to take part is £500 per team and the fundraising total is a minimum of £1500 per team – that’s £136 per team member.

The competition is open to new-comers. Previous experience of dragon boating is not necessary, but all team members must be able to swim in light clothing.

Try your hand at this 2000 year old sport to see if you can be crowned the fastest team! There is also a prize up for grabs for the best dressed team… fancy dress is encouraged! And a prize for the team that raises the most for COSMIC.

If you are interested in taking part, we would love to hear from you, please email info@cosmiccharity.org.uk and return your completed application form by 8th July 2022.
