5th Annual Lewes Dragon Boat Festival

This is a fun event for both spectators and participants! What is a dragon boat? A dragon boat is a 46 foot boat much like a canoe. Twenty paddlers sit side by side on ten seats and paddle in synch. The race is approximately 500 meters long, will start north of the Overfalls Lightship and end at the Canalfront Park in Lewes. The two boat heats will take about 2-3 minutes to travel the 500 meter distance. Every team is scheduled to race at least two times, more if they are winning. This event is held on the Lewes Rehoboth Canal in Lewes. Read more here...
