Race Day Preparations Underway

The weekend of the Stockton league event is nearly upon us. A bank holiday relaxing for some and a busy weekend of preparations, racing, partying and clean-up for the Tees Valley Dragons.

Saturday will see the crew welcoming travelling crews from all over the UK to the RTWC as we set out the buoyed racing course, kitchen and boat jetties ready for Sunday’s racing.

All are welcome to come and watch the racing from 09:30 to 17:00 on Sunday 27th of May.

Races will be over 200m, 500m and the exciting 2000m turn race. Crews will be arriving from 07:30 to get the boats onto the water dressed in the traditional dragon’s head and tail, with their team colours showing and setup their camp before the racing starts.


At 16:00, the RTWC bar will be opened to friends, family and visitors. Drinks can be taken onto the balcony through the Riverside room to have spectacular views of the final races of the day.
