Dragon Boat Racing


coming in from our winning race. I'm 4th back on the left

 I’ve really been missing dragon  boating, as our team is finished the  season.  But this morning there  were dragon boat races on the  Gorge Waterway here in town.  Even though our team was not  participating, myself and a few of  the female members of our mixed  dragon boat team  helped fill out an  all women’s team that was short of  paddlers.  It was a beautiful day for  racing, and we had so much fun.  We even won our first race despite  the fact that half of us usually paddle on one team, and half of us usually paddle on a different team. We did lose our second race, but the beer garden and the sunshine helped to cheer us up.

    Sounds like you had a good time, and winning the first race was excellent! We have a tradition here of Dragon Boat races on the Labour Day long weekend. (In fact, I just checked online, and this is the 20th anniversary Dragon Boat Festival!) I’ve never participated, but I know the people who do have a great time.
