Today, on St George’s Day an adrenaline pumping Dragon Boat Race is taking place, organised by the Isle of Wight Festival to raise money for WellChild.
Teams of competitive individuals have assembled to join us for a day of racing and entertainment on the glorious Isle of Wight.
Each boat will battle it out in a series of heats on the 200m course. Every team will race at least 3 times, with the fastest qualifiers going head-to-head in the Grand Final.
The winning team will walk away with their pride intact, team medals and a trophy, plus camping tickets for all team members to The Isle of Wight Festival 2015.
All teams will take on the Dragons in a fight for survival.
