2014 Broome Dragon Boat Regatta
Town Beach – Saturday September 13th 2014
The Broome Dragon Regatta is one of the major events on Broome’s sporting calendar and is also Broome Rotary’s biggest annual fund-raising event. The next annual regatta will be held at Town Beach on Saturday September 13th 2014.
Full details of the event, including team entry forms and sponsorship packages, will be available from this website in June 2014.
Broome Surf Life Saving Club took out line honours and retained the Perpetual Trophy in the 2013 Dragon Boat Regatta, contested at Town Beach in September 2013. It was the Surf Club’s 11th win in the Regatta’s 14-year history.
The verteran surfers did not have it all their own way, however, as they fought out a nail-biting finish in the final to narrowly beat event newcomers, the Fire Breathing Rubber Duckies (Broome Volunteer Fire and Rescue). The Fieries served notice that they will be a team to contend with as they gain more experience in future events.
Third place went to the Kimberley Training Institute Buccaneers, who were competing in only their second Regatta, while the Hash House Harriers took out fourth spot.
The 2013 event was contested in perfect conditions before a crowd of about 1200 people.
