Fancy dress and rowing at Vienna’s Dragonboat Cup

Two events that don’t always go together – fancy dress and rowing – take place at the Dragonboat Cup in Austria.

Made up of a number of races through June, with the finals taking place on Vienna’s Danube on June 27th and 28th, this is an excellent opportunity to see some great rowing and some fantastic fun.

Earlier rounds take place on the Schwarzl Lake in Graz (June 6th), the Traunsee Lake in Gmunden (June 13th) and the Zell am See’s lake (June 20th).

Teams of up to 20 compete in the races, with men frequently dressed up as women and a whole host of other crazy costumes on display too.

While anyone wanting to row will need to shell out €990 (£845) per team, coming along and watching the rowers get their dresses wet is completely free of charge.

What legendary British Olympic rower Sir Steve Redgrave would make of it is anyone’s guess.

Why not book the City Tour & Boatride in advance?

    Being in a dragonboat cup is nice. That’s one of the places that people could go and take a very relaxing trip.

    I dressed up in a morph suit last time we did a rowing event. It was easy to wear as most of them are water proof and are suprisingly comfortable.
