62nd Cub Pack Win District Dragonboat Racing Competition

Congratulations to the 62nd A team who won this years District Dragonboat Racing Competition which took place yesterday evening, 18th May, at Waterside Lodge. Due to the wet and windy conditions we had to revert to our back up plan and race the more stable Bellboats but the 130 Cubs that took part, and the parents that stayed to watch, still thoroughly enjoyed themselves.Out of the 15 teams that entered the 62nd A team achieved the fastest time of 1min 27.35 secs, the 58th A team were only 2 seconds behind and gained 2nd place with 1 min 29.53 seconds and 3rd place went to the 1st Southport who paddled the course in 1 min 38.22 secs.
A huge thanks to all the instructors that helped, to the leaders / Active Support Unit who ran the tuck shop and time the races and to the Network Scouts for marshalling and safety crewing the Bell boats.
