Get involved Events Reading Dragon Boat Festival For the second year running this exciting Dragon Boat Racing event is coming to Reading. A day filled with fun and energy, it's a great chance to take part in something a little different. Full training is given on the day and your instructor will be on hand throughout to talk you through everything you need to know. Who can take part Teams can be made up of up to 15 people, but your crew will need a minimum of 10 paddlers and 1 drummer to compete. We are looking for individuals to join our Daisy's Dream team, or you can create a crew of your own. You need to be aged at least 16 on race day to be a paddler, and if you are aged between 16 and 18 you will need a parent or legal guardian to give their consent. The drummer can be aged 12 or over, and again, parental consent must be given. Costs and fundraising target Our dragon boat has been kindly sponsored by Oracle Storage Systems Ltd in Newbury and, as such, entry into our team is completely free of charge. All we ask is that each crew member raises a minimum of £50 in sponsorship for Daisy's Dream. If you are entering a team of your own, entry is from £34 per team member, with a minimum fundraising commitment of £50 each.
