After last year’s success, The Working Boat pub in Falmouth will be once again hosting a unique and adrenaline pumping event from their very own private quay.

On Saturday, July 9 spectators can expect to enjoy a thrilling day of Dragon Boat racing, with teams competing throughout the day to take home the winning title.

Dragon Boat racing is an exhilarating sporting event where teams compete in canoe-like vessels fitted with hand carved dragon’s heads and tails.

With up to 17 people per boat paddling to compete in races at nearly 250m distances, spectators can expect to view an incredibly exciting and fun filled race from the pub’s quay. All of the equipment will be supplied too, from encouraging drums within the boats to life jackets and paddles.

Whether those attending choose to lap up the excitement from the shoreline or revel in victory on the water, spectator, winner or loser, there’ll be lots on offer throughout the day for attendees to enjoy.

For the early risers, the pub’s crew will be serving bacon baps to fuel appetites just in time for the first race. And from mid-day onwards they will be serving their delicious home-made pizzas from the brand-new Beer Tent pizza bar.

There are only a few spots left for local businesses looking to get involved in this year’s event, which acts as a great team building activity for employees. Businesses can sign up and find out more information by contacting
