In case you missed it, a fantastic family day of fun and excitement on the river in Kingston was had by all on Sunday with 55 dragonboats competing in heats all day and then a dramatic final race!!

Many local charities were represented. Our team 'Dragons Without Borders' performed brilliantly winning all three of their heats with the fastest overall time of 54.34 seconds. In the final sprint, we came 5th with multiple dragonboats within millimetres of each other!!

A tough and exciting finish on a beautiful Summers'day on the water.
