Ocean Terminal, Edinburgh        Saturday 31 August 2019, 9am-3pm

After a roaring success in 2018, the Dragons are returning to Edinburgh, in partnership with Ocean Terminal and Forth Ports.

This year we have set a minimum fundraising target of £1000 per boat. Each boat seats 16 crew, and one drummer! There is a £20 sign up fee per person.
