Welcome to the website of Thames Dragons

Thames Dragon Boat Club is one of the leading clubs in the UK.  Established in 1993, we have competitive, mixed, ladies and open crews.

We are based in East London, paddling from the London Regatta Centre, which is situated close to City Airport, the runway itself can be seen from our side of the dock. 

We welcome paddlers of all levels, if you live in or are visiting the London area we would love to see you at training.

Congratulations Ladies!
