Singapore Dragon Boat Festival – 2011

Posted on | July 16, 2011 | No Comments

On the 9th & 10th of July 2011, Dragon Boaters from across Singapore and Hong Kong took part in the Singapore Dragon Boat Festival at Bedok Reservoir. All races were 800 meters.

The Aussie’s hard work and effort with training both in and out of the water in the lead up to this race really pushed us up the ranks, showing that the team keeps improving each race and the club on a whole, gets better every year.

Austcham Paddle Club had an extremely successful weekend with the following results:

Expat 18 crew (mixed): GOLD!!!! 1st place International Business Community Grand Final (this means… THE BEST expat team in the country… again)

Open 20 crew (mixed):  4th place National Championship Grand Final (the fourth best mixed team in the whole of Singapore and 2/10ths of a second off bronze).

Men’s 20 crew:  4th place Minor Final (huge effort, got faster every race)

Clubs 10 crew:  6th place Grand Final (blanket finish only a couple of seconds across the field)

Women’s 10 crew:  BRONZE!!! 3rd place National Championship Grand Final (this means… 3rd best and fastest womens boat in the country, first National Championship medal ever for our Women’s team)

Well done Austcham …… Aussie Aussie Aussie  Oi Oi Oi !!
