Members of Coombs (Canterbury based builders) Sports and Social Club are taking part in the KM Charity Dragon Boat Race being held at Mote Park in Maidstone on Sunday 3rd July 2016. They have a full team of 17 who will be participating, going by the name ‘Coombs Cruisers’. All funds raised for this particular event will go directly to Catching Lives.
The team will enter a minimum of three races on the day, with 11 members of the team competing in each race. The fastest teams will then compete in the finals at the end of the day. It is a challenge for those who wish to savour the ancient traditions of the dragon boat, as much as for those who want to test their strength and rowing technique by travelling across the 250m course in the fastest time.
