DBS Marina Regatta 2014

Singapore’s biggest water sports festival, DBS Marina Regatta 2014 was held at The Promontory & Waterfront Promenade @ Marina Bay last weekend. It was an action packed weekend with Dragon Boat Race, Asian Drum Challenge, Asian Cosplay Meet, Asian Food Festival, DBS Movies by the Bay and many more.
The 200m Dragon Boat Race took place on 17 May. The 500m Dragon Boat Race was supposed to take place on 18 May but due to bad weather, all Corporate, Singapore Premier and Tertiary categories races had to be cancelled. The weather finally cleared up for International category finals in the late afternoon. This also means that there are no overall winners for the Corporate, Singapore Premier and Tertiary categories at DBS Marina Regatta 2014.

Thailand claimed the overall championship titles, winning both the International Premier Open and International Premier Women, while Singapore came in third in both categories.

The rain on Sunday didn’t dampen the mood for other activities happening around The Promontory & Waterfront Promenade @ Marina Bay. Besides the Dragon Boat Race, my favorite event at the DBS Marina Regatta 2014 is the Asian Cosplay Meet. It’s always interesting to see comic and anime characters come to life. There are so many great Cosplayers during the 2 days.

There’s also Asian Drum Challenge and Asian Food Festival during the DBS Marina Regatta 2014. My only complain is that there’s too many things happening over one short weekend. Haha.
