Last weekend, 18-19 October, for the third consecutive year we hosted the 4th DRAGON BOAT FESTIVAL. JAN COLLINS MEMORIAL.

We should mention the fact that this year more than 400 people, paddlers and companions, attended and participated in this regatta.

Ten teams of BCS paddlers from all over Spain were present this weekend.

This year countries such as the USA, Canada and England were represented and from Spain cities such as Murcia, Alicante, Malaga, Seville, Valencia, Pontevedra and Cantabria.

Saturday 18 was devoted to the play offs and club semi-finals.

Afterwards a giant paella was served in the port installations during which paddlers got together and exchanged stories about the morning’s event in a relaxed, happy atmosphere.

In the afternoon activities were held in the Doña Sinforosa Park for all the BCS team paddlers and companions who took part in dances, raffles and fancy dress competitions.

Sunday morning focused on the finals and the intercontinental regatta.

The festival ended with the always moving Flower Ceremony after which the medals and trophies were presented to participants and winners.
