Oars at the ready for the 2022 annual Dragon Boat Races and Fun Day, where you and your team will race against the competition to raise funds for Woking & Sam Beare Hospice!

Trident Honda is once again the main sponsor for the event, and is also hoping to have a team to participate in the racing.

Teams of 12-16 rowers will take to the waters of Goldsworth Park Lake in colourful dragon boats, and paddle furiously across the waters to be crowned the winners.

In addition to the spectacle of the races, there will be lots to enjoy on the banks of the lake, including a BBQ, face-painting, plant stall, tombola, refreshments and much more.

The event is to be held on 15th May 2022, and is great for families, groups of friends and colleagues, clubs and any team who are up for lots of fun.

No experience is required and all equipment is provided - just bring your energy and your warrior spirit!

The Dragon Boat Race dates back 2000 years throughout southern China and has now taken place annually for 20 centuries. The races are traditionally started with a special ceremony for good luck, performed for us by dancers and Chinese lions from the Chinese School of Woking.

The Dragon Boat event will once again be held in memory of keen hospice supporter Kris Cook, who grew up close to the lake where he pursued his love of water sports.
