Registration is now open for Dubai Festival City’s Dragon Boat Challenge. The event is being organised to promote community health and fitness, and will be hosted at the Marsa Plaza Creekside Promenade.
Teams can only register online, and all necessary equipment, including the Dragon Boat, paddles and life jackets will be provided.
Previously, the Dragon Boat Race was set to take place in Abu Dhabi’s Shangri-La Hotel, Qaryat Al Beri on March 27 and 28 this year. However, the event was shelved due to the pandemic.
Each participant will wear their own private PFD (Personal flotation device), and use their own paddle. No equipment sharing will be allowed.
Safety regulations have been put in place to ensure a safe and smooth edition of the Dragon Boat Challenge. The beach will be divided into two bubbles with 15 teams of 10 members on each side which will have its own entrance and exit. The team management will ensure a staggered entry of all team members.
Moreover, all teams will receive temperature checks as they enter the venue, and social distancing will be maintained at all times. The pre-competition safety briefing will take place online.
