Our Dragon Boat Festival has received such great support from local businesses and clubs over the past four years and since 2014 the event has raised nearly £60,000 for the charity with funds still coming in! Local clubs and businesses have found it to be a great team building experience with lots of fun had by all. 

About the event:

Registration opens at 10am on Exeter Quay with the first race commencing at 11am. Teams race head to head throughout the day in heats and the event wraps up at 4pm with an awards ceremony; the teams that place third and second are presented with bronze and silver medals respectively and the winning team are awarded gold medals and a trophy.

How to fund your boat:


Your business or club pays £360 for the cost of the boat hire, this will reserve your boat and is non-refundable. Each member of the team, including the drummer, then raises a minimum of £45 sponsorship.

Race for free

Devon Air Ambulance will cover the cost of the boat hire in return for each member of the team, including the drummer, raising a minimum of £70 sponsorship of which £30 must be received by the charity no later than 2 months prior to the event.
