Arundel Lido are working with the Arundel Festival this year to run the first ever Dragon Boat Race in Arundel.
Arundel Lido is the chosen charity for this event and any profits made will be donated to the Lido to support the continuous improvements and developments necessary to ensure the ongoing operation of the Lido.
The race will take place on Saturday 27th August 2016 starting at 10am and running throughout the day until 4pm.
Times are subject to change depending on the tide times.
The cost to enter a team in the event is £300. Teams can consist of up to 17 people on the boat at a time (minimum of 13 people on the boat), including one drummer. The minimum age for a crew member is 13 years, but all crew members must be strong enough to row the boat.
All teams must meet at Arundel Lido at 9.30am for registration and a full safety briefing and plan of the day.
Each team will undertake a training session, then take place in a number of heats, which will be followed by a knock-out tournament between heat winners. There will be a variety of other activities going on in the Town throughout the day, including swimming at the Lido and a ‘pop up’ bar at the Lido run by the Swan Hotel, Arundel.
Please send all completed forms and payments to: Nikki Richardson, Arundel Lido, Queen Street, Arundel, BN18 9JG (with cheques made payable to Arundel Festival).
Once this has been completed and signed, and payment has been made, this becomes a Team Contract.
