Bobath Scotland Dragon Boats 2020

Event Date: 06/06/2020

Gather your friends and colleagues together for the ultimate team day out. Bobath Scotland Dragon Boats is back at Balloch Castle Country Park on Saturday 6 June 2020. And in 2020 we are asking our supporters to 'row the extra mile' and join us for a supersized event! 

In 2020, Bobath's Dragon Boats will be celebrating its 20th anniversary. So for 2020 we are aiming to recruit 20 teams of supporters and raise a sensational amount for Bobath Scotland in the process!


Dragon Boats Racing

Dragon Boats

Your team of 12 - 16  people, or half team 6 - 8, will take to their boat and race along the bonny banks of Loch Lomond for the coveted prize of fastest team. 

Absolutely no experience is needed - just the will to get stuck in and have some fun!

Each team will have at least three races during the qualifying rounds, before the two fastest teams of the day battle it out in the exciting Grand Final. 

If you are looking for something completely different, an event where no experience is needed and one where all your friends and colleagues can come along, then the Bobath Dragon Boat Race is the event for you!

Barbeques and beers!

Dragon Boats

The boat race is only part of the day. Teams will also set up their own marquee in our team arena to chill out with a barbeque and beers, soak up the atmosphere and have those all important team strategy meetings!

If you are prepared to compromise on aerodynamics, teams can dress to impress on the day. We predict wacky wigs, pirate costumes, sailor hats and Hawaiian leis to be trending in 2020.

To give you a flavour of the event, check out this great video.
