"The team had the best time on water ever, racing was so much fun"


Paul Sadler Swimland - August 2023 (three boats)

"We just wanted to say thank you again for organising the Dragon Boats for the Paul Sadler Swimland team. 

Everyone really enjoyed being exposed to something new and were surprised how much they liked the sport of Dragon Boat paddling. 

Carlos was definitely a highlight and everyone in his boat totally enjoyed the experience. He made it fun and and his crew were therefore relaxed"

 'Pratt Hospitality Group' - Private Birthday session May 2022 (three boats)

"WOW! What a ripper of a day. We honestly had a ball. The two boats were great and made the whole team experience come alive with racing one another.

We were all wrecked afterwards and couldn’t move for days, we used muscles we didn’t know we had. We will recommend and will be back!"
