Dragon Boat Racing 45:00 
All Day: Philadelphia Independence Dragon Boat Regatta on Schuilkyll River.
So race day had arrived. A damp and drizzly start to the day, luckily not raining when we raced. Turned out nice and sunny in afternoon. First race was at 8.55am. Had a great race, excellent start and just kept going, in the lead from the beginning, but we sagged about 50m out perhaps as well in the lead, but made the A Division okay. Time 2.21. 2nd race wasn't until 2.00pm. Had a hard time lining up at start due to head wind and not best steers person. Not such a good start and despite driving hard, came 5th, (time 2.28), so final race in A Division consolation. Final race 5.00pm: drove hard and came 4th (time 2.24),behind 3 strong teams who practice several times a week and are a lot younger than us. Overall we did fine 12th best boat out of 152 participants in the festival. Not bad for a team where the average age is probably older than 50!
