Brixfest 2017 – Dragon Boat Sponsors
We are very excited to announce that we are Sponsors of the Dragon Boat Race in this years Brixfest taking place in Brixham on the Spring Bank Holiday!
BrixFest 2017 begins on Saturday 27th May and events will fill the town and harbourside until Wednesday 31st. We can only dream of the same weather as last year!
2017: Race to win! After the enormously successful inaugural Dragonboat Challenge at BrixFest 2016, The organisers have made it an annual thing.
BrixFest is bringing a DragonBoat challenge to shores of Breakwater Beach, encouraging local people to take up the opportunity to raise money for their charity of choice, and row for victory!
Team can be made up of up to 11 people and will be rowing within a 30′ classic Dragon Boat – as part of an ancient Chinese tradition. No experience is needed…just plenty of team spirit! Teams will compete along a 200m course in view of the spectators on the beach and breakwater itself.
The Challenge officially returns for the 2017 festival, hitting the shores of Breakwater Beach in Brixham on Sunday 28th May.
A lot will be made of the course record (200m in 54.53 seconds) which was set last year early in the day by ‘Buoys ‘n’ Belles’, a team made up of local B&B owners. Rumour has it they practised with buckets and spades the week before the race. Unfair? Nope – just clever! Think you can beat them? Apply now – https://www.brixfest.com/dragonboats
