Stellar season for Dragonflyers

Dragon boating

The Cultus Lake Dragonflyers ladies dragonboat team travelled to Penticton last weekend for the final race of the year, placing eighth overall in a field of 43 teams

The local crew finished in the top 10 of every regatta they entered this year, five in all.

At Deep Cove in April they placed second in the consolation final and seventh in the 200m sprints. In May at False Creek they finished 10th in an overall field of 48 teams.

In July they placed third in the platinum B final at the Nanaimo regatta (seventh out of 40 women’s teams), and third in the women’s A final at the Harrison regatta. It was a great year for women whose average age is 20-25 years more than most teams they compete against. Contact Laura at 604-799-1730 or Donna at 604-858-1864 for more Dragonflyer info.
