The annual DBS Marina Regatta is back again this year. Into its sixth year now, it will be packed with a slate of unmissable activities to take outdoor enthusiast, fitness lovers and party goers alike from day to night, whilst watching top dragon boating teams from around the region battle it out against the iconic Marina Bay skyline for Asia’s highest prize purse of S$134,000.
For fitness lovers like me, this edition of Marina Regatta is more of a regatta – it’s more than just watching fitspos rowing their dragon boats across our scenic bay. With many other activities lined up for you, it is going to be fun for you and your peers because you will be entitled to the summer of your life.
Eventgoers will have a chance to try out sailing in the Bay during the regatta with the DBS’ 18-m tall Swedish Match 40 sailboats – the first of the kind in Asia. These sailboats were debuted in 2015 as part of the DBS Marina Bay Sailing Programme
The Sailing Programme has been a part of the regatta since 2013 so that eventgoers like us will not miss out on the fun of sailing.

For those of you who love “Wipeout”, here’s a chance for you to live it! This year’s edition of the regatta will see the debut of BATTLE BAY – Singapore’s LARGEST inflatable water obstacle course – spanning over 11,000 sq ft.
