Dragon Boats Captains' Briefing

Updated: Jul 30, 2021

It seemed such long time! Although we had a highly successful Virtual Dragon Boat event in 2020, raising over £20,000 for York Hospital Charity, there was bound to be a real buzz when we started up again with the real Dragon Boat Challenge.

And so it was, on July 27th, when the captains and representatives of the 33 teams taking part in the 2021 Challenge gathered at the Novotel for their Briefing about the event.

Supported by around 20 Rotarians who are Team Contacts for their particular team, the soon-to-be paddlers heard a professional presentation by new Chair of the Dragon Boat Team Brian Joscelyne, Mike Sullivan (also new in post as Dragon Boat Treasurer), with Dave Marchant covering the safety and public liability aspects.

We are greatly looking forward to seeing everyone on the river on September 12th for the return of this flagship event in our calendar (and York's calendar) as the teams battle it out whilst raising £000's for this years' nominated charities SASH and The Hut, and their own charities. It will be an epic day - again.
