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 19th Milton Keynes Dragon Boat Festival takes place on Saturday 27th June 2020 at Willen Lake and more than 40 teams are expected to compete over the 200m race course, watched by several thousand spectators. As well as the exciting races, a wide range of bankside entertainment, food stalls and fun activities guarantee a fabulous day out for all the family!

  • Dragon boats, qualified helms and all racing equipment
  • At least 3 races per crew
  • Music and entertainment
  • Souvenir programme
  • Trophies for the top five crews, the best-placed mixed crew (minimum five ladies), the crew raising the most money for MacIntyre and the ‘best dressed’ crew
