First race results

As I’ve mentioned, I’m the steersman on the Algonquin College Singapore Slings dragonboat team. This weekend is the Ottawa Dragon Boat Festival and our first race took place at 10:30. Our goal was to race 500m in 2:20, which we felt was attainable based on our past years’ performance. I’m happy to report that we completed the race in 2:19.

The conditions were perfect — no waves and a slight tailwind. Since then, the wind has come up a bit, so it’s entirely possible our next race at 4:30pm will be a little faster.
