How to attend


Please SMS Louise Linke 042 917 5233 (contact details here) if coming so that we know if we have enough paddlers. 
  • Please email preferably 24 hours before a training session so we know if we have enough to go ahead, or text Vicki asap when circumstances change.
  • New paddlers have to sign a waiver form before coming on the boat.
 

We aim to have as much fun as possible and cater for ‘social’ paddlers who want to get some fitness and ‘competitive’ paddlers who want to try regattas.

Dragon boating is suitable for all fitness levels, all swimming levels (life jackets provided if required), men, women and children aged over 12 years.

Paddles up!
