Dragon Bay – Sunday 7th July 2019

Dragon Bay is back! We’re pleased to announce this year’s date as Sunday 7th July and delighted to be running the event for the fifth consecutive year but with a whole new focus.

Dragon Bay is CBA Events annual charity event taking place on Lake Windermere, in the beautiful setting of Low Wood Bay Resort and Spa and Low Wood Watersports Centre. The event is supported by English Lakes Hotels.

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

In a change to the normal proceedings, this year will see ALL monies raised by participating teams go directly to their chosen charity or good cause. How? Well, CBA Events will be covering 100% of the event running costs in order to see all money raised go to worthy causes. This would not be possible without the continued support from Low Wood Bay and crew and equipment from Low Wood Watersports Centre.

The condition of entry will be that every boat raises a minimum of £800.00 in order to take part, with £50.00 going to Paddlers for Life and £750.00 going to a charity of their choice. Paddlers for Life is an amazing charity which aims to support and help those suffering from cancer through physical activity.

Each boat will take part in two races before the fastest three go head to head to win the coveted prize of Race Champions 2019. But don’t worry, there are plenty more awards up for grabs, including Team Spirit, Most Money Raised on the Day and Best Fancy Dress.

Charities, community groups and corporate teams are all welcome. It’s going to be an ‘oarsome’ day!
