Dragon boats head to Chichester’s canal

Share this article

THE Chichester canal will once again host the annual dragon boat race on Sunday (June 2).

The Rotary Club of Chichester Priory and Cancerwise organise the race every year to raise funds for their causes.

Racing will get under way at 10am at the canal basin, 
until 3pm.

Each dragon boat team has 13 to 20 paddlers, plus a drummer, who compete in three races each.

Spectators are invited to come along to watch all the action, and enjoy the nibbles provided by Brasserie Blanc.

There will be a commentator on the canal so everyone knows what is going on, and a prize-giving ceremony. The proceeds will be split between Cancerwise and causes supported by the Rotary Club.
