Teams of up to 11 people are invited to take part in the racing, with all the dragon boats and racing equipment being provided and with no previous experience is required.

There will also be plenty of activities on the bankside to entertain teams and spectators between races including Chinese lion dancing, funfair, street entertainers, children's activities, bar and catering.
