dragon boat racing a highlight of this year’s lunar new year festival

A feature of the Lunar New Year Festival is the Dragon Boat racing which were held at Darling Harbour.

Teams came from all parts of New South Wales and races were held in various categories such as all male racers, all female racers, age categories as well as male and female mixed racers.

There are other dragon boat races in other states and the winners in those states will combine with New South Wales winners to compete in the World dragon boat championships which will be held in Hong Kong later in the year.
