The Swiss Dragon Boat Team for Alumnae and Alumni of the University of London sponsored by the Swiss LSE Alumni Association

The Races

Dragon boat races have been held on the river Rhine by Eglisau, on the river Limmat by Zurich and on the Lac de Joux in the Jura Mountains for decades. The Eglisau races, in which the team participates, is the oldest annual dragon boat competition in Europe. The Zurich races, held every 3 years, are part of the largest folk festival in Switzerland. With our participation in the Lac de Joux races, we aid cancer research and clinical treatment. Sign up via the below form.

 If you want to paddle, you need to sign up below. We will have a pre-competition training session. On the first race day, the Team meets at 08:15 by the 3 flag poles in front of the church near the entrance to the race enclosure. The Chief of the Boat will be carrying a large Union Jack.

Next action: Eglisau, River Rhine, 24/25 June 2023. Not yet a paddler? Sign up today!
