The OWLS Dragonflies will race this weekend in the Portland Rose Festival Dragon Boat Race held on June 9 and 10 at Tom McCall Waterfront Park.
The Portland Rose Festival Dragon Boat Race is unique in that each team’s flag catcher is required to pull the flag from a buoy in that team’s lane, which is what signals that the team has finished the race heat.

Race times appear as scheduled.
It is possible that the race will run ahead or behind schedule.
Specific race times on day 2 will be determined by the results on Saturday.
Only qualifying teams from Semifinals will race in Finals.
