Bring your dragon boat team to one of the most fun and competitive dragon boat races of the season

For many people in Hong Kong, the sport of paddling is synonymous with the competitive pastime of dragon boat racing. The VRC Paddle Club is proud to host one of the largest dragon boat regattas in Hong Kong, the Deepwater Bay Dragon Boat Regatta. Usually held on a Sunday in late April or early May, this early to mid-season timeslot gives crews a good chance to test their form against many of the crews they expect to race later in the season at the Tuen Ng races. Held over the standard international distance of 500m, along the western shore of Deepwater Bay, the VRC offers events for Open, Women’s, Mixed and Under 18 categories.

“Sponsors of the event get the benefit of exposure to over 1,000 competitors”

If you decide to bring your team to the event, you can be sure to experience hard but fun racing, a safe environment and continual entertainment from our DJs and MCs. The VRC also sends crews to our own event, so you will often see plenty of blue shirted competitors running around between their races to make sure everything runs smoothly. Our large number of sponsors of the event get the benefit of exposure to over 1,000 competitors; in return we all get to enjoy excellent food, useful freebies and lots of beer and wine!

The event normally starts early in the morning around 8am – with a minimum of 50 crews each year and often more we have a lot of races to fit in! We aim to give every crew at least three races by running a tiered format. Each year there are cup, plate and bowl events in our more popular categories. The cup finals normally occur close to 5pm in the evening, and are immediately followed by the prize giving ceremony and then the party into the night!

Beer and wine is always on hand for the spectators and paddlers alike to enjoy. We recommend saving it for after your final race though! (Soft drinks also available)

Please contact us at events@vrcpaddleclub.com if you are interested in competing, sponsoring or covering the event.
