Dragon Bay – Sunday 9th September 2018

Dragon Bay is back! We’re pleased to announce this year’s date as Sunday 9th September and delighted to be running the event for the third consecutive year.

Dragon Bay is an annual charity event taking place on Lake Windermere, in the shadow of the Langdale Pikes at Low Wood Watersports Centre. The event is a joint venture between CBA Events and English Lakes Hotels in support of Paddlers for Life.

Teams compete in the regatta to win the title of Dragon Bay Champions.

Formed in 2014, Dragon Bay raises awareness of Paddlers for Life, an amazing charity which aims to support and help those suffering from cancer through physical activity. They receive a donation from each Dragon Bay team entry fee to support their work. Once entered, teams may fund raise for a charity of their choice.

With a maximum of 18 teams being able to take part, entries come on a first come first served basis.

Family and corporate teams welcome. It’s going to be an ‘oarsome’ day!
