OSCAR Dragon Boat Race in September 2022

Come and join us for the seventh OSCAR Dragon Boat Race on Thursday 15 September 2022!

To enter the OSCAR Dragon Boat Race all you need to do is get a team of 11 people together (10 rowers and 1 drummer) – it’s as simple as that!

You will compete against other companies from the shipping industry at the Docklands Sailing and Watersports Centre at the event in September.

It’s great fun and you’ll also raise money for serious ill children at Great Ormond Street on behalf of the OSCAR Campaign.

What does the event involve?

25 teams compete against one other and the top six teams battle it out in a final.
There is a bar, food, quayside games and activities and a DJ to get everyone in the mood.
This year there will also be a classic car show as part of the event. It’s an excellent networking event and good fun. Most importantly, no training is required for those who want to race.


Docklands Sailing and Watersports Centre, 235A Westferry Road, Isle of Dogs, London E14 3QS
