Second Annual Lewes Dragon Boat Festival September 14, 2014


Presented by Schell Brothers

The Sussex Academy Foundation hosted its second annual Lewes Dragon Boat Festival at the Canalfront Park in downtown Lewes, Delaware on Sunday, September 14th, 2014.

Congratulations to the Griffin & Hackett Power Strokers, our 2014 Champions! 

Our 2014 Festival was a huge success with 30 local teams competing under sunny skies and before a huge crowd of spectators.  Thank you to all of our Competitors, Sponsors, Vendors, Volunteers, and the community as a whole for such incredible support and spirit!

The Lewes Dragon Boat Festival (LDBF) was created to support the capital campaign for the Sussex Academy, a public charter school that currently serves students in grades 6 through 10 in Sussex County, Delaware.  All proceeds from the LDBF go directly to help pay for the campus and buildings of the Sussex Academy. 

Curious what the Dragon Boats are all about? Check out this great video captured by Delmava VOIP of our 2014 event -- take a bird's eye view!


Paddles up!!
