Stormy Dragons are not just a Dragon Boat team! A group of us also paddle OC1s and the team has its own six seater. We’ve been building our Outrigger team for the past two years and started entering more competitions as Stormy Dragons.
Yesterday we took part in the Around Beaufort Race for the first time. We didn’t win (we came last out of six mens teams) but it was a solid paddle with some people running their first ever OC race. It’s just over 14.5 km and we did it in an hour and a half. Generally it was calm and flat, although there was some washing machine-like water on the far side of Beaufort Island. We can’t wait to do this again next year and see if we can knock a chunk off our time!
