Although this is not an elitist event we will be running a more advanced race for experienced teams on the Sunday (29th). This will be a 10km downwind race in rough seas - not for the faint hearted! Teams will be able to register for this during the main event registration on Saturday and may be asked to complete a qualifying paddle to confirm their spot. Prize giving for this event will be on Sunday evening. 


Whilst we would encourage teams to purchase their own board for training purposes, there will be a limited number of Red Dragon boards available to hire for the event.  Please note; you may be required to travel with these from your country of residence to the event site. For all enquiries please email the team.  


There will be a prize giving for the winning teams during the closing ceremony as well as an award to one lucky team chosen at random simply for just entering the Dragon World Championships!


We will be working with The Hilton Barbados Resort and Sugar Bay Hotel to provide a limited number of reduced room rates of up to 20% for competitors and/or supporters for the duration of the competition. To get an exclusive discount code to secure your booking please register your team today and we will send you the codes.
