Jersey Hospice Care Dragon Boat Festival 2021 Supported by Condor Ferries.
With no experience needed – just loads of enthusiasm – the Festival is a fantastic event for groups of friends and colleagues, where you can expect to enjoy a fun day out with a great carnival atmosphere. The challenge is not so much the paddling technique, but in trying to synchronise with the other paddlers in your boat.
This will come as no surprise to the teams in Jersey who have taken part in the event before and look forward to the yearly dragon boat festival. Since 1997, thousands of people in Jersey have raced dragon boats and raised more than £700,000 for Jersey Hospice Care.
A dragon boat is a spectacular 40-foot long canoe-like vessel with an ornately carved dragon’s head and tail. One person sits as a helm, keeping the boat in course with a giant paddle, while a drummer sits in the prow, beating out the time and 16 people, sitting in pairs do the paddling.
