Corporate Dragon Boat Events

Corporate Dragon Boat Events - No experience necessary just plenty of team spirit.

Our Corporate Dragon Boat Events are specially designed for you and your company’s requirements. We will talk through the smallest details from suitable clothing to facilities at the chosen venue, to make sure the event is exceeding your expectations!

Dragon boat racing events are the ultimate team building day out, very much different from your typical on land activities. With our motivating and dedicated staff and the atmosphere at our events, we believe our dragon boat events are the most effective when it comes to teamwork. Additionally, dragon boat racing as a sport is known to bring out competitiveness and boosts crews morale by communication and working closely together – while having fun out on the water in the fresh air!

With on-the-day training, crew briefing and our friendly helms/coaches guiding teams through each dragon boat race, there is no need to worry about health and safety – View our ‘Dragon Boat Racing Events Health and Safety Guide’ to find out what we do to keep you safe.

We know how important your yearly or quarterly get together is to your employees and colleagues, so we want to assure you we are working very hard to offer high quality equipment, professional approach and excellent customer service. We would not offer an event we would not want to attend ourselves.

Get in touch with us and let us plan your dragon boat event! We also offer a great range of other team building activities which can be combined to make an unforgettable company fun day! Visit for inspiration!

Types of Corporate Dragon Boat Events

Our NewWave Events team will suggest whether you will benefit from a full jam packed race day, with multiple heats and semi final’s or whether a more relaxing time on the water with smaller competition and more in depth coaching is more suitable.
