- From 9am
Dragon Boat Race
VENUE: Mote Park, Maidstone, Kent, ME15 7RN
An annual dragon boat challenge staged by the KM Charity Team to help charitable groups with their fundraising.
Teams of 11 compete with one of the crew beating a drum to dictate the pace of the paddles.
They take part in a minimum of three races but the fastest teams compete in the finals at the end of the day. You may have up to 17 rowers in your squad, so fill all 17 spaces to raise more money and everyone will have at least 2 races on the day.
It costs £425 to book a boat online and crew members are asked to raise as much as they can for their chosen charity or good cause.
It is a challenge for those who wish to savour the ancient traditions of the dragon boat, as much as for those who want to test their strength and rowing technique by travelling across the 250m course in the fastest time. It is also a fantastic day for spectators as well as for people taking part.
For more information, or to book a boat in the race please call 0844 264 0291 or visit KM Charity Team website.
