Company Testimonials

‘We had a fantastic day dragon boat racing at the Riverside Festival despite the majority of us having zero experience! Upperton had three boats competing and it was so much fun, the music was loud and the energy high – the crowd cheering and noise made every heat so exciting. We will definitely be taking part next year’
