Out of Town Teams

Out of Town Teams

In Wellington, we go out of our way to help International teams compete in our fabulous harbour. Please register your interest by filling out a registration form on the home page and we will happily assist with any queries you may have so that you can get your team organised to visit.

There is no pre-qualifier to enter the Wellington Dragon Boat Festival and no ID tags are required so visiting teams can be made up of any combination of paddlers. We will accept entries of 10 from Australian Teams (Adult crews only) but as we only race 20’s we will match you up with another travelling Team of 10 prior to registering. “Min” number to register is 10. School teams must be 20 for the mixed, girls and boys divisions but can also be 10 for the boys because they have a separate 10’s race.

Central Region Dragon Boat Championships
We have some exciting news, we have been working with CRDBA and we have been approved to host the Central Region Dragon Boat Championships. This means you can now qualify for nationals at the Wellington Dragon Boat Festival.
If this is something your team would like to take part in, please ensure you tick this as an option when registering and one of our team will be in touch.
