Colour City Dragons competed in the 2019 Year of the Pig Lunar New Year Dragon Boat Races at Darling Harbour on Saturday 9th February. We had 28 members compete as 4 crews in 8 heats. The target was to complete a race in a competitive sub-minute time which we did!! – three times – Race 17 Senior B Mixed 59.33, Race 53 Senior A Open 59.24 and then Race 61 with a time of 58.83 in the Premier Open – the last race of the day for us.
There were also 8 new team members who paddled with us for the first time in a regatta at Darling Harbour. So thank you to all who competed and supported to make the day of racing such a success including coach, sweeps, drummers, race secretary, crew managers, boat loaders and unloaders, photographers, snack makers, pep talkers, volunteers, place savers, social organisers and cheer squad. It was a team effort!
