Congratulations to last year's winners - West Kirby Sailing Club!


2018's Wirral Dragon Boat Festival was our biggest and best year yet. A total of over 20 teams, including a range of businesses, public sector bodies and groups of friends came together to compete for the Headway Trophy. 2019's race promises to be just a fun! We have Mayor-Elect, Councillor Tony Smith and Mayoress – Mrs Barbara Smith, opening the festival as well as entertainment afterwards.

We already have many places filled – so register today to avoid disappointment!

Last year participants and supporters enjoyed some family fun including face painting, drinks, and BBQ, with some people taking home some great prizes from the raffle, kindly donated by our sponsors. You can expect the same again this year! 

​The Wirral Dragon Boat Festival is back on Saturday 7th September 2019 for the ninth year!
