Teams Needed For Dragon Boat Race

Weymouth Beach Live Site

10:29am 1st July 2013

This summer sees the return of Dragon Boat Racing off Weymouth Beach.

Local teams of up to 20 rowers can take to the waters in boats provided by activities company PGL.

Each team pays an entry fee of £275 and all money raised will go to local charities.

We spoke to Ian Brookes, one of the organisers from Melcombe Regis Rotary Club.

He said: "It's wonderful, it's tremendous fun, you get very wet, and you end up making an awful lot of money for charities. It's something that we've put on every year, we've been doing it now, I think, for about for ten years."

"The whole thing is like a huge beach party, with dragon boat racing thrown in".
