Bray Lake Watersports

Dragon Boating

Flying Fish


If you want to develop great technique, timing, teamwork and power transmission then Dragon Boating is the sport for you. The Flying Fish Dragon Boat group has been working closely with Bray Lake Watersports since 2012 and has direct access to four dragon boats onsite including a slimline racing 10 person boat - one of only two such boats in the UK.

The Owner of Flying Fish is Tim Smith. He is a Level 4 British Dragon Boat Coach who has been coaching the GB Premier Team since 2013. He is also proud to work with the Pink Champagne Breast Cancer Survivors team. The "GB Prems" recently came 6th at the 2015 World Championships in Canada. So if you want to develop speed and efficiency on the water you will be in safe hands.

Dragon Boating is also ideally suited to more sedate paddlers. If you tell us what you need and how you need it, then Flying Fish will devise a package for you to suit your specific requirements at a pace that suits you.

You may wish to consider some corporate training on site, race training or preparations for an endurance or charity event. You may wish to partake in some "paddle tourism" or team training to accompany an organisation's annual meeting or get together. We can provide stags and hen dos and will even prepare you to represent GB in the sport. If you are a novice we will get you paddling and racing safely in no time.

All or our boats are on lightweight trailers - we can also come to you! All you need is a suitable stretch of water. Flying Fish will provide all equipment, risk assessments, safety briefings and are fully insured. Price on application depending on size of group, location and size of undertaking. That said, we do like a challenge!

Colenorton Dragon Boat Club

The Colenorton Dragons team have an accomplished history. Originally formed way back in 1992, when the sport of "Dragon Boating" was still growing in Great Britain, Colenorton enjoyed a great deal of success within the championship leagues, both here and abroad.

In fact, Colenorton even has two trophies named after the club that are highly sought after by the teams that compete in the championship league.

Bray Lake has been the home of Colenorton Dragons since 2010 and we have to say, it is a wonderful home! We not only have the advantage of being able to paddle all year round, but close by we also have access to the river network and therefore, can go further afield if we feel so inclined.

For more information about getting involved with the club please contact us directly or call 07906 049920
