Dear Team Managers

On behalf the DBS Marina Regatta Organising Committee, I would like to thank your teams for participating in the races last weekend. The turnout and atmosphere on Saturday were great! Unfortunately, we had to cancel all the local races on Sunday due to the inclement weather.

Throughout the day, we were hopeful that the races could resume at some point. However, the Cat 1 warning lasted till the late afternoon and it finally came to the point where the Singapore Dragon Boat Association assessed that it could not run the Corporate, Singapore Premier and Tertiary categories meaningfully. The International category finals were not affected as they were scheduled for the late evening during the closing ceremony. And as all the international teams could race in their respective finals, we could proceed as planned.

Given the no. of teams in the Tertiary, Corporate and Singapore Premier categories, it was not possible for us to run just the finals for these categories. However, we really wanted to showcase the local teams to our VIPs and we therefore decided at the last minute to include the exhibition races for the Corporate, Singapore Premier and Tertiary Open. As we were not able to run the 500M races on Sunday, the prize monies for the three categories, both Women and Open, were given to the winners of the 200M races instead. This also means that for DBS Marina Regatta 2014, with the exception of the International category, there are no overall winners for the Corporate, Singapore Premier and Tertiary categories.

We share your disappointment at the turn of events on Sunday and thank everyone who has given us your feedback and suggestions. We will definitely take them into consideration in our post-mortem and for DBS Marina Regatta 2015. In the meantime, if you have any other suggestions/feedback, please do feel free to drop us an email(

Last but not least, a big thank you for your support of DBS Marina Regatta. Although it’s only in its third year, we are pleased to note that the DBS Marina Regatta has helped to raise the profile of dragon boating in Singapore and put Singapore in the calendar of regional dragon boat races.

I hope all of you have had a good rest and we look forward to your continued support next year!
