Henley Winter Series

Henley Winter Series

Click to enlarge images below:

Type: Competition / Game

Henley Dragon Boat Club has now established the Henley Winter Series as the winter dragon boating event to be at, in the UK.

The Series comprises of four long distance time trials over a circular race course of approximately 7km, with a turn around an island at each end of the course. The turns and staggered start provide exciting racing for the crews and an unexpected spectacle for members of the public enjoying a peaceful Sunday morning stroll along the River Thames.

Prizes are awarded for the:

• Fastest crew at each event
• Fastest crew based on handicap at each event
• Overall Series Winner (the crew that records the fastest overall time for all four events)

Entries are limited and will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. The entry fee for 2012/2013 remains at £6 per paddler, per event.

• 20 man boats, minimum 14 paddlers – deposit of £84 required with entry form.
• 10 man boats, minimum 6 paddlers – deposit of £36 required with entry form.

Entries close one week before each event. Crews who do not submit an entry form and deposit before this date will not be permitted to race.

Henley Dragons have two 18-man dragon boats and one 10-man dragon boat available for use by visiting crews who cannot bring their own boat to the event. These will be available on a first-come, first-served basis and can be reserved by sending a cheque for the relevant amount which may be cashed immediately. In the same way as the entry fees, if the event is cancelled before the day the boat loan fees will be refunded in full, and if the event is cancelled on the day half the boat hire fees will be offered for refund.

Tea, coffee, bacon sarnies and cakes will be on sale before, during and after the event by the fantastic Henley Kitchen Crew. The events take place on Sunday mornings, allowing ample time for crews to sample some of Henley's pubs for Sunday lunch and celebrations afterwards, so whether you’re coming to join the race or watch it all from a spectator’s perspective, you won’t want to miss the Henley Winter Series!
