About Dragon Bay

Dragon Bay is an annual charity event taking place on Lake Windermere, in the shadow of the Langdale mountains at Low Wood Watersports Centre.

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

Started in 2014, Dragon Bay raises awareness of Paddlers for Life, an amazing charity for cancer survivors. They receive a percentage of each Dragon Bay team entry fee to support their work. Once entered, teams may fundraise for a charity of their choice.

This year the size of the event is increasing to 30 teams and 6 boats on the water.

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