We are the most northern team in the British Dragonboat Association (BDA) league. In the BDA league we race from April to October. Normal race distances are 200m (short race) and 500m (standard race) with the occasional 1000m thrown in for good measure.
Over the years, the club has also organised trips to compete at events overseas including Penang, China, South Africa and Canada.
We have one permanent race boat and two training boats so we can accommodate lots of new people. Our boats are stored at and we train out of Durham Amateur Rowing Club which is situated on the River Wear. As a Serpent we have use of the Rowing Club’s facilities which includes newly refurbished showers, toilets, bar as well as free parking.
Whilst our members come from different backgrounds, fitness levels and ages we all enjoy fresh air and exercise in the beautiful surroundings of historic Durham City.
All can come along and have a go for free but if you are a regular attendee you will need to become a member.
