Stormy Dragons sweep the Stanley Long Distance Races

Yesterday was a day that The Stormy Dragons will forever be proud of.

We entered two competitions, the open 4.5K and the mixed 2.5K. We not only won them but:

  • Our open team consisted of 7 women and 11 men versus all male boats yet we won by a considerable margin of minutes
  • Our mixed team (8 women, 10 men) in the 2.5K was faster than the all-male teams

Here are the original time sheets which will leave you in no doubt as to why we are so happy with the results.

If you are feeling brave, you can watch all 21 minutes of our first 4.5K here! Live the Stormys chug!

At the end was a tug of war. We’d never tried this before. The final was to be the best out of three matches. There were only two…..

Final – Match One

Final – Match Two

All in all it was a wonderful day for Stormies. Bring on the CCWC qualifiers at the end of the month!

Well done to the team and as always, a big thank you to our coach, Bill.
