Yesterday saw the return of Dragon Boat races to Weymouth Beach. Organised by the Rotsry Club, these events have raised over £36,000 for various charities in the last few years. The event was won by the “Hawaii Five Ducks” team with other awards for “Spirit of the Dragon” and best fancy dress, among others. Like almost all the major Weymouth events, the Dragon Races take place right in front of Aaran Guesthouse, just 50 yards away from our front door and surrounded by great scenery with the magnificent Georgian frontage and the Bay as a backdrop.
