Annual event run by the Rotary Clubs of Portsmouth & Southsea and Southsea Castle (supported by other clubs) at Lakeside, North Harbour (formerly IBM)
The next annual Portsmouth Rotary Dragon Boat Festival will take place on Sunday 13th May 2018 at Lakeside, North Harbour, Cosham.
In excess of 20 teams, including juniors, take part over a 250m course on the lake at Cosham. Teams consist of 16 rowers and a drummer, and the boats are helmed by one of the professional team which provides the boats.
Racing is preceeded by a safety briefing and lifejackets are provided. Races are run in heats to determine the three fastest teams in each category, and a final race-off is followed by prize-giving for 1st, 2nd and 3rd, plus junior winners and a best dressed team prize.
As well as the racing, there is a range of stalls, including food outlets, ice cream and refreshments and there are a number of exciting activities for all the family, such as archery, bouncy castle, face painting and more.
Entry is free for spectators and ample parking is available for a small charge. All proceeds go to charity.
