It was a long 2 year hiatus, but finally the wait was over for seven of our local Calgary teams who faced off at a knock out regatta under a glorious sunny afternoon on Sunday, September 26, 2021.
The main sentiment was everyone was just thrilled to be paddling in these friendly races, with huge smiles and high spirits on the Glenmore Reservoir. Dragnum took top spot in the 500m race, the Calgary Police Ladies sprinted to the top spot in the 200m and Team Miles displayed their finesse as the top team paddling backwards!
The winning teams had their choice of homemade cookies prepared by our very own Chewie! It was a resounding success and we thank everyone who came out to enjoy one last paddle before we put the boats to sleep.
We look forward to seeing everyone again next season and racing in August 2022 for a full fledged Calgary Dragon Boat Festival!
