Sponsor Us


Exe-Calibre Dragon Boat Club is a well established organisation that is registered with the British Dragon Boat Racing Association (BDA).

As well as training all year round in Exeter, Exe-Calibre Dragon Boat Club organises the annual Charity Dragon Boat Race on the river Exe, takes part in race events all over the country and provides teambuilding sessions for local employers, scout troops and youth clubs.

Exe-Calibre is looking to build on its many successes of the last few years, which include:

  • promotion to the top tier of UK Dragon Boat racing
  • the establishment of a regular second crew at racing events
  • developing several of our members to compete for Great Britain on the world stage


Why sponsor Exe-Calibre Dragon Boat Club?

Sponsoring Exe-Calibre Dragon Boat Club could bring your organisation many benefits:

Increased brand awareness

Our 12 metre long boats are used for training sessions all year round as well as numerous charity, corporate and racing events. The unusual nature of the boats draws attention wherever they go, especially during transit.


Involvement with a truly inclusive brand

Many sports teams tend to have a male or female members of a similar age and ability. Exe-Calibre Dragon Boat Club has men and women of all abilities aged from 12 to 64 who train and race in the same boat. Unlike many sports, Dragon Boat Racing is open to everybody, with the best crews being those that work together as a team.


Supporting a growing sport

Dragon Boat Racing is the second largest participation sport in the world and is growing quickly in the UK. For a cost comparable to the sponsorship of a local football team, Exe-Calibre Dragon Boat Club can offer your brand national exposure that will grow year on year without any additional investment.


Sponsorship options to suit all budgets

Sponsors can choose to have their logo emblazoned on everything from paddles for £50 each to an entire Dragon Boat for £9,000. The logo will remain visible for the lifespan of the item.
