Corporate Training

Teamwork is everything in dragon boat racing. A synchronized team will always beat a stronger but less coordinated team. This ability is vital in the work place, especially when working with highly diversified talent.

Why choose a dragon boat team-building event?

Dragon boat racing is quickly becoming one of Britain’s most popular corporate team building events. Getting everyone working together and having fun, the smooth running of a dragon boat depends on communication, co-ordination and drive. It is not about individual skills, but everyone working together equally as a team.

Dragon boat racing improves communication and strengthens relationships. It is particularly suitable for keeping large numbers of diverse characters active and involved. You will leave feeling energised and motivated as a team. Click here to make an enquiry. 

What to expect from our sessions

Dragon boat racing is suitable for most levels of fitness, age and skill. We can make this as fun or competitive as you like! 

Each boat can include up to 18 people. Our packages start with a safety briefing on land and basic techniques explained. Our qualified and experienced coaches and helms will guide the teams on the water, taking them through technical pieces and fun games. With larger groups, teams can end their session with some fun races. Sessions last around 2 hours, but this can be extended on request (and is advisable in very large groups).

We supply all equipment, qualified coaches and helms, as well as changing rooms and showering facilities. Click here to make an enquiry.
