Dragon Boat Regatta June 12th

Despite the wet weather, a great effort by the ten intrepid paddlers who narrowly lost out in the semi finals - more to follow with photos

This is a team building event for all those who fancy an afternoon of fun on the water.  Wokingham Waterside Centre is organising a Dragon Boat Regatta for Berkshire Scouts on Sunday the 12th of June.  You do not need any previous experience or equipment as the Centre will provide not only the boats and paddles (and drums!) but also the buoyancy aids and, if you need them, instruction and an experienced qualified helm for each boat.

All you need to do is assemble a team of 11 (10 paddlers and a drummer) Cubs, Scouts, Explorers or Scout Network/Leaders. While crews rarely fall into the water, they often get splashed so everyone will need a change of clothing and a towel and something warm to put on if they get cold together with sun protection and a drink.
