How We Train

We will be training in either 9metre 10 person or 12metre 20 person Dragon boats out on the water.

What Do You Need?

We supply paddles and buoyancy aids.
Paddlers need to wear appropriate kit for being in a boat and training.
This should be lightweight clothing and thin layers.

To keep warm please wear a number of thin layers that can be removed.
Bring a change of clothes; after all dragon boating is a water sport and you may get wet!


Other Info

All novices will be given a full safety brief before getting in the boat.

A rescue boat will accompany our training on the water.

Training will be technical techniques, teaching people how to paddle correctly and the all important timing in the boat.

Novice Introductory sessions are an 1hr long and once you have got the bug additional training will last approx. 1.30hours to 2 hours.

Coaching is done by suitably qualified coaches/helms.
