On the 21st March 2015, Saturday, Singapore Dragon Boat Association (SDBA) organised the 100m Dragon Boat Sprints Regatta in celebration of World Water Day. World Water Day is an annual event to promote awareness on the importance of water and energy.
With a team of 14 people that included staff from FOCUS Adventure and her sister company, CAMP CHALLENGE, we competed in our first ever Dragon Boat race in both mixed and opens category.
Despite our hectic work schedule and unforeseen circumstances, we managed to clock our record timing of 0.36.819secs in the mixed category. With room for improvement in timing, it will spur us on towards a better performance for our next race!
” Being the first race for the young dragonboat team, the effort and willingness to sacrifice the time and effort on Saturdays despite the Hectic schedule is commendable. “
- Jeff Tan, Assistant Manager, R&D
” Being able to participate in an actual dragonboat race was definitely a humble and an enriching experience for all of us! Our results were truly commendable and I believe that the whole team benefitted greatly from the whole experience. Looking forward to more races! “
- Foo YongJun, Facilitator
” The event brought the team closer and showed us our potential. Even though we did not make it first, but for a first race we performed quite well. Now with more trainings, I look forward to our next race! “
