PHOTOS: Dragon Boat Races Return for Second Year

By Ty O'Neil

Immunize Nevada and GWN Events hosted the second annual Northern Nevada International Dragon Boat Festival at the Sparks Marina on Saturday, Aug. 18.

A warm, rather windless day created great racing conditions. Racers rowed hard across nearly the entirety of the Sparks Marina in a rough average of 2 minutes and 30 seconds. Team DragonMax, out of Berkeley, California set the day’s record of 2 minutes and 12 seconds.

Immunize Nevada was competing in the event, which was a fundraiser for the nonprofit, and promoting vaccinations for Nevadans. You can learn more about them at https://immunizenevada.org/
