Learn Teamwork; Paddle a Dragon Boat

This weekend we trained in collaboration, focus and cooperation on the water while paddling!

Wells Fargo and several other companies sponsor Dragon Boat races at Lake Merritt in Oakland, California. It is incredibly fun, wildly competitive and brings together a huge group of paddlers from all over!

We are novice paddlers… still concerned with the basics (don’t fall out, don’t lose your paddle, listen for the count); we had a couple great volunteer coaches and 9 hours of practice to get ready for race day! We learned only one person gives the command, we Must count and paddle together, don’t pay attention to the other boats and much more. Most of all we learned to depend on each other. More information.

We did so well for “ newbies” the Aqua Beast Red team moved into a Category C last race and though we didn’t win a medal we improved our time and raced against some tough teams! Our Gold team of Aqua Beasts won 3rd place Bronze in Category A with the toughest teams like the SF Fire Department!
