DBS Marina Regatta returns: Bringing largest eco-maze race to save the planet

The DBS Marina Regatta is back in its eighth edition, with a mission to educate and inspire Singaporeans from all walks of life to embrace a more sustainable lifestyle.

The highlight of the DBS Marina Regatta this year will be the 23,000 sq ft maze, constructed out of renew material, which is made from 95% recycled material, mainly compressed “straw” made from leftover stems of agricultural crops.

Built as a sensory experience, adrenaline junkies and weekend warriors will have 12 minutes to climb, crawl, jump and swing their way through physical obstacles around the maze to test their physical speed and knowledge of critical issues facing the environment. Here are the land and see activities you can expect at DBS Marina Regatta 2019:

  • Dragon Boat Races
  • Sailing at the Bay
  • Water Sports
  • Race the Maze
  • Giant Games
  • Workshops
  • The Grubhouse

A total of 100 teams will be competing for a combined prize purse of S$115,000. This is the largest prize purse for a dragon boating competition in Asia.

Green Initiatives

DBS will be using recycled, re-usable, and natural materials in various ways across the event. Reusable cups, bottles, and containers will be available. All F&B stall owners will also be provided with reusable crockery and tableware, as well as biodegradable recyclable containers for takeaways.

DBS has also partnered with Sunseap, a sustainable energy provider, to set up 100 solar panels at the event venue. The solar energy generated will be used to power up Airbitat Smart Coolers, an eco-friendly and energy-saving alternative to conventional air-conditioning, that will be set-up around the Promontory. The solar energy will also be used to power certain parts of the event.
