The Condor Ferries’ Dragon Boat Festival

Come and join in the fastest growing team water sport in the world!

Did you know that dragon boat racing – the colourful, competitive water sport started in China more than 2,000 years ago – has been rated the second most popular sport in the world?

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.
