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?

openday1

Dragon boat racing is the ultimate team sport where up to 20 paddlers, rallied by a drummer at the front and guided by a steersperson at the back, must work together and paddle in unison. It requires no previous experience and is suitable for all men and women regardless of age or ability.

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 is the perfect activity to take your corporate social events to a new level by introducing a high energy activity that everyone can do - all ages, all fitness levels. It provides employees, associates, clients or friends with the chance to learn about themselves, each other, and have fun doing it.

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.

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! 

Typhoon DBC is a long standing member of the British Dragon Boat Racing Association (BDA) and compete in the National Dragon Boat League. We have an array of qualified and experienced coaches (including current GB premium team coach!) and helms who have trained award winning corporate and charity teams including Barclays Capital, Accenture, SunGard and BT. We can provide you with everything you need to host the perfect team building event.

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).

The venue we use is London Regatta Centre, a state-of-the-art rowing centre located in the heart of the Docklands, directly opposite London City Airport. Two minutes walk from Royal Albert Docklands Light Railway (DLR) station, the centre is home to several rowing and dragon boat teams and boasts a Chinese restaurant, shower and changing facilities, and ample on-site free parking.

We will supply all equipments needed including paddles, buoyancy aid, qualified coaches and helms.

But don’t listen to us, hear it from our clients:

             Typhoon has been a great influence and we owe our success as a corporate crew competing in races such as our internal company events, The Lions Hong Kong Festival and the Canary Wharf Challenge. In 2009 we were the only team ever to win the Canary Wharf Challenge two years in a row, racing in a 10 men dragonboat over a series of races. We hope to continue our great partnership with Typhoon for 2011.
  In 2009, Typhoon trained the first Barclays Capital corporate crew to enter three charity races… In 2010, Barclays Capital 'Dangerous When Wet' team won the Tower Hamlets Rotary Dragon Boat Festival. In 2014, Barclays trained and completed the Thames Great River Race
  The event was absolutely amazing, all people enjoyed the whole afternoon and lot of them asked me when we will do it again. Trainers were very helpful and engaged. Everything went really well… Thank you very much for helping me make this happen
  We had a blast thanks for organising a great day for us… The instructors were great givingbanter and being able to speak to the guys. We would be delighted to have you guys down for a match!
