Bowie Boaters - Rotary Club of York’s Dragon Boat Challenge *volunteers needed*

What is it?

Following on from our triumphant first Dragon Boat Team in 2018, we’re hoping to enter a team of hardy rowers* to the 2019 Rotary Club of York Dragon Boat Challenge.

*You don’t have to be a hardy rower to take part. Everyone is welcome to join the team, full training on how to paddle the boat is provided on the day!


Sunday 14th July 2019, 9am – 3pm


River Ouse, York


To enter the York Mind team, we ask for:

  • A £25 entry donation (to secure your place in the boat, payable online)
  • Commitment to raise £100 per person in sponsorship (to help us reach our team target of raising £1500 before event day)
  • Willingness to join in with our team’s fancy dress theme! (theme is tbc for 2019)

Interested in taking part?

We’re looking for 20 lovely people to make our Dragon Boat Challenge Team!

If you’d like to join our team, we’d love to hear from you (no experience needed, just a willingness to fundraise, dress up and do a little paddling).

To put your name down for the 2019 team, either email us on or call Holly on 01904 404940.

Onwards, to glory!
