Sponsors & Supporters


Every year support from our sponsors allows us to provide those additional extras that make this event so well received. These extras include two sets of boats to allow for more teams to enter and for the event to run on time, ample toilets (yes, it’s important), water, marquees at subsidised rates, food and so on…

Please support the event sponsors when you can!

Supporters & Volunteers

We also are indebted to the hard work put in by the Lamma Dragons Dragon Boat Club, The Lamma Island Fisherman’s Recreation and Sports Association, and The Lamma (North) Dragon Boat Association.

Stand-out volunteers include Mike Tanner who regularly serves as Chief Official, Amy Wong who does amazing work for the event, and Kevin Bishop for his technical support. In addition, the event would be nothing without the continued support from officials and volunteers (2017) who are listed below.

As organisers of the Lamma 500, we pride ourselves on running the event to a very high standards of officiating and racing. We have very experienced and competent volunteer timekeepers, course setters, officials, judges and helms who strive to deliver a competition that is fair to all teams – and that runs to schedule. They always appreciate a smile!
