Next up is Henley winter series...starting Nov through to Feb 2019.


October 2018 - What a Busy Summer!

National Dragon Boat Finals in Nottingham 2018, amazing results for Bristol Empire Dragons this year:

  • Winning the plate in open and mixed 200m
  • Winning the minor cup in open and mixed 500m
  • 7th overall over 2km (out of 17 boats)
  • Our joint crews also pulled off great results with the u18s and women's winning their categories and the seniors coming second.

It was a great way to end the season and all this goes to show what Bristol is capable of.


September 2018 - Something a Bit Different You Say..Oh, Go on Then.

A few crew members put Bristol’s name out in the raft world today!

Came into the race expecting to place in the midfield at best, and as an unknown to the rest of the crews being our first race as Bristol. Ended up coming away with 1st in mixed and 3rd overall out of 17 rafts as 1st place got disqualified to the shock of all the other crews! Great effort put in and a big thanks to Lee, Stephanie, Pippa and Tom for coming today, will be great if we can get a raft for next year's season. To be continued…
