MK50 Dragon Boat Festival
Venue: Willen Lake
Date: 25 Jun 2017
Annual Dragon Boat Festival held at Willen Lake in aid of charity. This year it will have an MK50 theme.
Up to 16 people paddle each 40 foot boat with a drummer at the front beating time and a helm at the tail steering a straight course. No previous experience is required, just plenty of team spirit!
The Festival is open to everyone and up to 60 crews (paid entry fee) are expected to battle it out over the 200m race course. Age UK Milton Keynes, a local, independent charity, benefits from boat sponsorship and encourages all crews to raise money for them.
