This year UCLAN Confucius Institute will organise the annual Dragon Boat race amongst North West Universities at Preston Marina. 6-8 teams will once again compete for the top spot, drawn from university staff, students and friends of the Confucius Institutes. Other competing universities include Lancaster University, Edge Hill University, Liverpool University and UCLAN.

We are currently recruiting for a team of 18 enthusiastic competitors who are able to attend at least a couple of training session on Saturdays (dates tbc) in preparation for the race.

The only requirements are the ability to swim 50 metres and obviously plenty of team spirit! If you haven’t done this sort of thing before, don’t worry you will learn everything you need to know during the training sessions.

Why not take this opportunity to take part in something different and get to know a really fun and exciting Chinese tradition. If you are interested in being part of the Manchester team please email by 16th March!
