St Catherine’s Dragon Boat Festival returns, and you are in for an oar-some adventure! So get ready to dip your oar and make it count.

Come and join us for a corporate team building event like no other, harness your competitive spirit and take to the water in Tilgate Park on Saturday 7 September 2024 from 1pm until no later than 6.30pm.

Each team is made up of 11 people: 10 rowers and a drummer. You’re guaranteed two races, followed by a head-to-head final where you could be crowned champion 2024 – there are medals and team pride at stake! And the competition doesn’t stop when you’re on dry land as your whole crew will have plenty of opportunity to network with the competition and to continue to build your skills in a host of activities for you all to enjoy.

Simply by taking part, you’ll be showcasing your business’ community support, raising awareness and vital funds for people needing St Catherine’s care as they face life limiting illness, so that nobody has to face death and loss alone.

“We took part in the last Dragon Boat race which STCH hosted. We did not know what to expect, turning up and having no experience what so ever of how to row, let alone row a Dragon Boat; we feared the worst. The experts were on hand to guide us each time we went into the water to make sure the experience was safe, fun and competitive at the same time. Being part of a Dragon Boat team promotes a strong unity and team work ethic, which really does add to the overall experience of the day. We all left the event with a huge sense of achievement that we had not only completed something new, as a team, together, but that we had also raised funds and awareness for a very worthy cause.” - Gary at Sabre Insurance
