2024 Tampa Bay International Dragon Boat Festival

Racing Classes & Race Distances

The Tampa International Dragon Boat Festival offers a full array of racing classes in both 20-paddler standard boats and 10-paddler small boats. All available racing classes are listed on the menu to the left. The race distance is 450 meters for all straight-line races. A 2000m two-lap race is always a consideration but the feasibility of hosting this distance, and which racing classes will qualify, depends on evaluation of overall entries and the success we have with keeping races on schedule on race day.

Accommodation and Parking

Accommodation and parking for the Tampa International Dragon Boat Festival have never been more convenient. Four hotels are located right on the shorelines of the Rocky Point Lagoon and one additional hotel is only a five-minute walk from the athlete’s village. Call any one of these conveniently located hotels directly or book your room online using the information below.
Parking options will be plentiful although we will be keeping the Bahama Breeze lot cordoned off to accommodate their daytime customers and also to create a wide corridor leading from the athlete’s village to the marshalling area and loading docks. More information regarding parking and team equipment drop-off rules will be released in race bulletins to be published in April.
