Teams will race against the clock with the quickest going through to the grand finale. Teams will then compete against each other for the title of Dragon Boat Champions and the prestigious race trophy.
Dragon boat teams will also have the opportunity to compete in an additional ‘knockout’ challenge.
Plenty of cheering from the crowds and the rhythmic beating of the drums are certain to provide a fun day for all the family.
A day of themed activites including a Chinese dragon display, arts and crafts and a treasure hunt are certain to provide plenty of alternative entertainment on the day too.
There will also be entertainment from the Cool FM Roadshow and a mobile animal farm for children to enjoy.
CLIC Sargent in partnership with Antrim Borough Council are looking for enthusiastic crews of 17 people to race in the Chinese-style dragon boats.
You don't need to be extremely fit or skilled to take part in this event, just get a good team together and you’re guaranteed to have a great day out whilst raising funds for CLIC Sargent.
The entry fee for the Antrim Dragon Boat Race is £5 per team member and CLIC Sargent asks that each team member raise a minimum sponsorship of £40.
