York Dragon Boat Race 2019

The Good Ship Lollipop is about to set sail!

Sunday 14th July sees the return of the annual York Rotary Club Dragon Boat Race to the waters of the River Ouse!

This is always an exciting event, but it is made extra exciting this year because Mark Mattinson, the Sales and Marketing Manager at York City Cruises is rowing to raise money for Lollipop. Mark will be racing as part of the Visit York team and we wish them all the best of luck! There are thirty six teams competing for the prestigious trophies and to raise as much as possible for local charities.

Please show your support by sponsoring Mark, follow the link below to the Visit York sponsorship page and in the message area add a note to say that you’re sponsoring Mark.
