Visitors to the area can enjoy an afternoon of fun at the 3rd annual Dragon Boat Challenge.
This is our third year and a follow up to a very enjoyable & successful event in 2018 when 18 teams & supporters raised over £5,000 for good causes.
Dragon boat racing is an ancient Chinese tradition and dates back more than 2000 years. Boats are 40 foot long and need a crew of 15-19.
The race is a 250 metre sprint along the river Bann with 2 boats taking part. Through heats, the fastest teams make it to the final to become this year's champions.
Drumaheglis Marina offers a venue to provide a great family day out, with onsite catering including BBQ, and Bouncy Castle for children. Come and support teams or just enjoy the spectacle of Dragon Boat Racing on the River Bann.
