Dragon Boating

Welcome to our newest addition to the Off The Wall Programme...



We have partnered with the Bristol Empire Dragon Boat Club to bring you something really quite different...dragon boat racing, which is unliek anythign you have ever experienced before. A Dragon boat comprising of 20 seats, filled with people from a variuety of abilities, which makes up a crew truly of all shapes & sizes....it's not how strong you are but all about your timing & technique to move the boat.  


So...we are looking for prospective crew members &|or those of you who fancy trying something a little bit new...the Empire Dragons can cater for in excess of 80 of you.  Sign up & come down to our open try it for size day free of charge, where you will be taught the nuances of sticking your paddle in the water...steering...& the banging of the drum that makes your boat move like a synchronised turbo charged millipede, by club members.  What better way to spend a few hours, than trying something new out on the beautiful River Avon & blasting the socks off those January blues for another 11 months ??.
