Dragon Boat spectacular set for Lincoln Brayford Waterfront!

Ringrose Law & LIVES host the annual spectacular Lincoln Dragon Boat Challenge on Saturday 18th June when 21 teams will take to the water, watched by several hundred spectators. This is the first boat race since 2019 and is set to be the biggest and best yet.

Crews will race the thirty foot brightly painted Chinese boats over a 200m course on the Brayford North Waterfront.

The 21 crews representing local businesses and charity organisations across Lincolnshire will be raising money for LIVES on the day. Local teams include Branston, Streets Chartered Accountants, DatCom and Daniel Charles Construction and past winners Belton Construction.

LIVES is a vital Lincolnshire charity who attend 999 medical emergencies across the county, 365 days a year. Whether they are providing rapid first response support on their doorstep, or highly specialised medical interventions to the most seriously ill patients, they all volunteer their time – for free – to save lives and be there when someone is having their worst day. The charity provide the equipment and training for the ever increasing need.

Racing will commence from 11.30am and trophies will be presented by LIVES to the winning crew from around 4pm.

Alex Bennett, marketing manager at Ringrose Law and one of the organisers of the event, said: “We are delighted that so many local companies are supporting this event and through their generosity we hope to raise a significant sum for LIVES. We are sure that crews and spectators alike will enjoy a fantastic day with races every 10/15 minutes throughout the day and plenty of entertainment on the Brayford including a Penalty Shoot Out with Lincoln City Foundation, Face Painting, Active Nation, Party Delights, Gelato Cart, Coffee Trike, Custom Bakes and much more.”

Entrance to the event is free to spectators and parking is available at Lucy Tower Carpark and other public carparks close by.
