Gold for Stormys at the Hong Kong Internationals

This weekend the Stormys produced their best ever performance in an international competition.

  • Champions in the international 500m mixed international small boat
  • Runners up in the 250m Ladies Small Boat
  • 2nd runners up in the Hong Kong 250m mixed small boat and Hong Kong 500m mixed standard boat

Congratulations to the entire team for an awesome performance this weekend and all the hard work in training that led up to it. Thank you to our coach, Bill Hutchinson, who performed wonders with a crew stacked with people racing their first season.

Next stop, the Stanley Shorts, where we intend to complete the trifecta of winning all three Stanley Mixed Cups in one year. And then its the qualifiers for the World Championships in September.

Sarah, remember to bring the Lucky Lobster with you from now on whenever we race!

Go Stormys!

Hong Kong Internationals Day One

Day one of the Hong Kong Internationals saw Stormy Dragons bring home two rather gorgeous trophies.

The ladies won the silver (or first runner up as it is called these days) in the Hong Kong 250m small boats, and the right to compete against the international teams on Sunday.

Our mixed team took home 2nd runner up (third, bronze, etc) in the Hong Kong leg of the competition at the same distance.

Rather attractive trophies too we think!
