Dragon Boat Results - Deep Cove Charity Race
April 16, 2011 - It was a great day although absolutely freezing. Deep Cove is a great introduction to the race season as the races are only a 200m event. Awesome sprint racing. There were some great teams present and I'm personally proud of the teams efforts.
Eye of the Dragon had a great day with some great results to show for the fun we had. In all there were 40 teams competing on the day, 23 of them mixed teams. Eye of the Dragon placed 8th out of the 23 mixed teams. Download a pdf of the Eye of the Dragon race results, click here. by Adele Piroshco.
EYE OF THE DRAGON BOAT TEAM 2009
Top row: Jim Taggart, Maggie Livingstone, Liz Charyna, Adele Piroshco,
Team Manager, Gary Piroshco, Rajpaul Singh, Bruce Robinson, Alberto Heide.
"Imagine if you will...a 45 foot canoe, flying down a 500 meter
race course, with twenty paddlers stroking in unison to the beat of a
drum, hearts pounding, muscles straining, adrenalin pumping...this is
dragon boating at its best!
