Forty teams line up for the Laracy & Co Lamma International Dragon Boat Festival 2010

Forty teams, including the athletic Boracay Bumshells team from the Philippines, have entered the Laracy & Co Lamma International Dragon Boat Festival taking place this Sunday 16th May at Tai Wan To (Power Station) Beach, Lamma Island, Hong Kong.

“It’s a fantastic line up of teams!” said Race Director Brad Tarr. ‘With strong teams such as defending champions the Island Paddle Club, plus the likes of the Boracay Bumshells, Stormy Dragons and Lamma Dragons it’s going to be another really competitive Festival.”

First staged in 2007 this is the fourth annual Festival, also known as the ‘Lamma 500” due to its international race standard 500-metre course length.

‘The Lamma 500 is one of the most exciting, colourful and friendly sports events in Hong Kong but with a real competitive edge,” said Mr Damien Laracy, Principal at title sponsors Laracy & Company. ‘We’re delighted to continue our support for the event.”

The Lamma 500 is one of the most challenging and competitive races on the Hong Kong dragon boat calendar with deep, fast water on a course set against the incredible backdrop of one of the territory’s highest peaks, Mount Stenhouse, and the dramatic industrial landscape of the Hong Kong Electric Power Station.

Securing its reputation as one of the most challenging races of the season, the Festival also features the only 1,000-metre dragon boat race to be held in Hong Kong. A record number of teams are expected to compete in this extreme race.

The Make A Wish Foundation children’s charity is the Official Charity of the Lamma 500 and will be organizing activities during the event to raise funds for their activities.

The Laracy & Company Lamma 500 will take place from 9am to 6pm on May 16th 2010.

Entry for spectators is free and refreshments are available at the beach.
