  • Dubai’s Waterfront Market – Deira will open its doors to host an adrenaline-fueled Dragon Boat challenge for the first time on March 26th and 27th.

The 200-meter water races will take place in front of the Waterfront Market promenade throughout the 2-day event. The teams will be divided into four race categories: Open, Mixed, Women & Corporate. For each race category teams will compete in heats, semi-finals and then the finals. The event will ensure COVID-19 safety measures are thoroughly implemented. 

Dragon Boat racing originated 2,500 years ago in China. Dragons, alongside the sun, are traditionally revered in Chinese culture and Dragon Boat racing pays homage to these ancient beliefs.

Mohammed Al Madani, Waterfront Market Manager said; “We are continuously on the lookout for new engaging healthy activities for the community and we are delighted to bring the Waterfront Market Dragon Boat Challenge to the market for an ultimate family weekend”.
