Fifty-five teams to compete in the first Lamma International Dragon Boat Festival, 10th June 2007

Organisers of the Lamma International Dragon Boat Festival, to take place on 10th June 2007, announced today that entries were now closed for the first ever international dragon boat race to be held on Lamma Island as all 55 berths in the Festival had been filled.

“It has been an incredible response from the Hong Kong dragon boat community,” said Race Convenor Ms Gina Miller.

“To gain 55 team entries in the first year of the event is fantastic and showcases the popularity of the sport here in Hong Kong,” Ms Miller continued.

The Lamma International Dragon Boat Festival will be held at the picturesque Tai Wan To Beach on the Yung Shue Wan side of Lamma Island.

The 55 teams will compete in Men’s Open, Women’s Open and Mixed Division race categories.

Races will be staged on a six-lane, 500-metre course specially created for the Festival.

We felt it was important to offer a good quality, international-standard event for teams who are serious about their racing,” said Tournament Director Mr Brad Tarr.

“There are a lot of dragon boat races around in Hong Kong, but very few over the full 500 metre distance. The Lamma Festival gives dragon boaters the opportunity to show their mettle at an international standard race meeting,” Mr Tarr continued.

Races at the Lamma International Dragon Boat Festival 2007 will commence at 8.45am and be completed by 5.30pm on June 10th.

Spectators are welcome to join in the Festivities and their entry is free of charge.
