Dragon Boat Regatta
Monday, August 13, 2012
I participated in my second regatta of the year yesterday and we managed to win our division and 'the spirit award'! Not bad! The weather even held out for us which was an added bonus. There is great teamwork involved in getting 20 people to paddle together and we were definitely in sync by our third race. We went from a time of 2:33 (min) to 2:22, the first time we've beaten 2:30 in a 500 metre race. All in all it was a great day and worth getting up at 5:45 am!
