On Sunday the 22nd of July 2017, we will entering our second Dragon Boat Race with The Kingston Rotary Club and we would like to invite you join us.

On the River, hundreds of competitors, in more than 50 teams, will be battling it out to be crowned Dragon boat Champions. Between 9.30am and 4pm, rowers will compete their way through several heats for their place in an exciting eight boat final. At around 4pm the top eight teams will go head to head to be crowned Dragon Boat Champions.

The Silverlining Charity is looking to recruit 16 athletic rowers come fundraisers to join us on our boat with a fundraising target of £100 per head. While you will need to be able bodied to take part, no previous experience will be required. All rowers will receive training and buoyancy aids (just in case) before taking to the water. Team registrations start from 9.30am. If you are interested in rowing with us you will need to register your interest by email (admin@thesilverlining.org.uk).

In the surrounding Canbury Gardens, spectators will be able to enjoy the spectacle for free from the river bank. A host of food stalls, market stalls, sideshows, bouncy castles and rides will be on hand to keep spectators refreshed and entertained throughout the day. Please come along, bring the family, enjoy the sunshine and show your support!
