Ottawa Dragon Boat Festival: Day 2

June 22, 2008 @ 11:16 By: gordon Category: Current affairs, Dragonboats

The weather here at the ODBF isn’t as nice today as it was yesterday. It’s not actually raining at the moment, but it’s overcast and windy and every time the trees sway drops of water fall on us. The conditions on the course weren’t the greatest — choppy and windy — but we were third in our race this morning and just a few tenths of a second behind the boat just ahead of us.

Out final race of the day is a 200m sprint at 2pm. This is the first year they’ve held a 200m race. In years past, there were two 500m races, but the second race rarely had a significant impact on the overall standings, so they’re trying something new. Should be a lot of fun! 🙂
