Dragon Boat Racing in London

NewWave Events will provide all the necessary equipment and staff for the dragon boat racing event in London. Surrey Docks is our recommended venue so we will liaise with the water sports centre staff to ensure a smooth and successful event. The terrace offers the ideal seating area for teams and with easy access to the pontoon area, the loading of the boats is quick and easy. While on the terrace, spectators and other teams have a clear view of the dragon boat racing and can cheer on the other teams.

Depending on the size of the group we can create race schedules for either a half or full day of dragon boat racing. Commentary, music, and PA system will make your event a truly unique experience full of great atmosphere and healthy competition.

Before the dragon boat racing, our Event Manager will explain general event procedures and make participants aware of how the day runs. Boat marshals will then prepare participants for dragon boat racing with full health & safety briefing and how to paddle as a team.

Whilst on the water and going up to the start line, teams will be able to admire the amazing views of the Thames in London, while learning and working together to improve their stroke. The dragon boat racing will commence as soon as our staff (starter) makes sure you are all aligned, and it is all fair!
