Racing....Dragon Boat Races Start @ 9AM Sharp in the Carolina Beach Yacht Basin with the finish line at the Carolina Beach Marina. This stretch of water will be home to the Dragon Boat Races all day on Saturday. Dragon Boat Teams will embark and disembark at Gibby's Dock and Dine Restaurant Docks and the finish line will be at the end of their Deck. The course is designed to be 350 meters and teams will initially racing against the clock and then racing in the finals in head to head competition.
Where can I watch from? The entire marina area and surrounding green space and lots along both Canal and St Joseph Street will be great vantage points to view the race.
The Event Lot and Main Stage: This will be behind the SeaWitch Café on Canal across the street from the Marina and just a block from Gibby's Dock. We are planning to have a local Radio Station broadcasting from the Main Event Area in the morning and a Local DJ will be spinning tunes the rest of the day.
The Awards Ceremony will take place @ the event main stage following the last race and the final results will be announced with Top Teams in various flights being awarded Top Team Honors.
