Join in Belfast’s first ever Dragon Boat regatta and help support the Lagan Dragons, Northern Ireland’s breast cancer dragon boat team. No previous experience required!
It’s 8.45am on a beautiful sunny Saturday morning and I’m standing beside Belfast`s River Lagan, to meet an amazing bunch of ladies who are united by two things: breast cancer and a passion for dragon boat racing.
