During this event, teams board beautiful Dragon boats inspired by traditional Chinese style, complete with dragon head and tail. Each team has a coxswain, 8 paddlers and a drummer who sets the rhythm. The goal? Row as fast as possible to raise money for the Weekje Weg Foundation, which has been making vacations possible for minimum-income families for 40 years.

About the race:

The race promises to be a spectacle with teams competing against each other in a pool system. The preliminary rounds will be followed by the quarter and semi-finals, and finally the grand final in which two teams will compete against each other for victory. Along the quay, spectators encourage the teams for extra motivation.

Ruben Blair, president of JCI Eemland, is enthusiastic: "We are happy to be able to bring this great event to Amersfoort again. It is a unique way to be sporty and at the same time contribute to a great cause."
