The ‘Soaring Dragons’ dragon boat racing team train twice a week from their base at the Boat House in Barrow. You may have seen them practising on the river.
This year all their hard work paid off as they won the 500m Open Plate Final. The competition took place on September 25th at the National Watersports Centre in Nottingham. It was a superb achievement as it was their racing debut and they beat experienced teams.
Would you like to join them? They are keen to attract new members especially from Barrow. If you are interested email the crew on info@ soaringdragons.co.uk or visit their website at www.soaringdragons.co.uk. Training sessions are currently held every Sunday at the Boat House but please contact the team before coming along as this may change in the winter months.
