Dragon Boat Race

On Saturday 8th September, a motley crew of pirates (staff, staff’s family, parents) gathered at Bewl Water for the annual Dragon Boat Race.

This was our fourth time entering the event, but sadly could well be our last as it looks like the event is coming to an end.

Our races were exciting, if not a little wet. In our first race we came 2nd by half a second. In our second race we managed to annihilate the competition by romping home in 1st place. Unfortunately, we were pipped to the post in race number 3 and our race times were just outside the qualification zone for the final races. Not a bad result as a third of our crew had never been in the boat before.

Thanks go to Joseph Lee for organising us all. So far we can say a huge thank-you for helping us to raise a total of £1421 on our Just Giving page.


There are already musing for a different event next September – keep your ears to the ground.
