The Dragon Boat challenge hosted by premier fresh food market, the Waterfront Market – Deira is rescheduled to 2nd and 3rd of April. The challenge is rescheduled due to the national mourning period for Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum.

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.Waterfront Market Dragon Boat Challenge Rescheduled
