The False Creek Women’s Regatta and Breast Cancer Survivor Event 2018
Race Day and Location
Race day is Saturday, May 26th, 2018. Located in Vancouver, British Columbia, the race venue is set on beautiful False Creek, in the heart of the City. Racer’s village is at Creekside Park, on the corner of Athlete’s Way and Ontario Street, next to the Olympic Village area. Registration usually starts at 7:00 am and races generally run between 9:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. (times confirmed with the final race grid)
The regatta consists of three 500m dragon boat races using BUK dragon boats. There is no age class racing. Paddles and Transport Canada approved PFDs are provided for racers. Breast Cancer Survivor Challenge and Flower Ceremony is once again being hosted by our Regatta and promises to be the Highlight of the Day!
There will be a minimum of 18 and a maximum of 24 paddlers allowed on the roster, plus 1 drummer and 1 steersperson. All participants must be female except for the steers, which can be male or female.
During the regatta there is also a costume contest where teams are encouraged to dress up with a unified theme (optional, of course). During the break there is a chance to do a short skit or presentation to show off your costumes. The winner of the costume contest receives free admission to next year’s Women’s Regatta!
