37 Teams to Compete at the 3rd Laracy Gall Lamma International Dragon Boat Festival

Thirty-seven of the best dragon boat teams in Hong Kong will compete this Sunday May 10th in the territory’s toughest race series at the third annual Laracy Gall Lamma International Dragon Boat Festival being staged at Tai Wan To Beach, Yung Shue Wan, Lamma Island, Hong Kong.

At 500 metres the Festival, also known as the ‘Lamma 500’, is one of just a few competitive race series in Hong Kong to use the international standard race length, and therefore attracts the most athletic racers.

“It’s an excellent line up of strong teams in all three divisions,” commented Tournament Director Brad Tarr.

“All of last year’s champion teams are returning to defend their ‘Lamma 500’ titles, but they’ll be facing tough and determined opposition as these teams have been training for months,” said Mr Tarr.

“The race has a fun element to it of course, it’s in the nature of the sport, but at the end of the day it’s the results on the water that really matter to the teams at the Lamma 500,” continued Mr Tarr.

“The racing is going to be excellent to watch for spectators on the beach, especially if the weather continues to be warm and sunny” said Mr Tarr.

Teams will compete in Men’s Open, Women’s Open and Mixed Open Divisions starting from 9am.

Spectators are welcome to attend, entry is free and food and drinks are available at the beach.
