Dragonboats 2022

DRAGONBOAT FESTIVAL

The Albert Pier.

18th September

Since 1997, thousands of people in Jersey have raced dragon boats and raised more than £700,000 for Jersey Hospice Care. September saw the usual day of revelry as teams of corporates and friends alike donned costumes  and got paddling in aid of a worthy cause. This year saw 30 boats turn out in teams of sixteen pit their strength and skill against a bunch of similarly experienced oarsmen. The usual party atmosphere was in evidence as people ate Powerbars and drank water to get their courage, as usual. Don’t forget to start picking your team for 2022!
