Celebrating 100 years of Welwyn Garden City

This year we are celebrating 100 years of Welwyn Garden City and Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council in partnership with GLL/Better Leisure and the Welwyn Garden City Centenary Foundation have organised a Dragon Boat Racing Festival to conclude the centenary festival's Week of Sport.

The event will take place on Sunday 5 July at Stanborough Lakes, and is open to local community groups and businesses racing in teams of up to 11 people, with each boat taking part in at least three races during the day. Each race is timed and after all the heats have taken place, the six fastest boats are entered into a semi-final and then onto a final.

The event will run all day with registration from 9am. Refreshments will be provided to purchase, competitors and spectators are also welcome to bring refreshments if they wish.

The dragon boats, all equipment and qualified helms are provided by the organisers, please note competitors must be 16 years or over.

The cost for a community group to enter a team is £110 and I have attached the entry form which provides further information.

If your organisation is interested in taking part or you have any questions please get in contact with me and I’ll be happy to assist.
