The Morning Paddle was ‘slightly damp’ as described by Joannie Ransbury: “It was a dark and stormy morning– I just got out of the dragon boat, which was half full and the collective attitude was right on. We returned from Haliburton’s Head Lake laughing and very wet. I’ve got two days to dry off… it’ll be “paddles up” again on Wednesday”. (Ed. Now THAT’S the spirit!).
The evening paddle, on the other hand was in perfect conditions, sun and only a slight breeze, attended by approx. 17 Paddlers (3 new) plus coach Scotty Boyd. The Foo was resplendent in her new makeover – thanks to those who put in the many hours to scrape, sand, paint and varnish her over the past weeks! Tonight’s paddle was a leisurely ‘warm up’ one, according to Coach Boyd, however with the Port Perry Dragon Boat Festival coming up on June 17th, we can expect the upcoming practices to increase somewhat in intensity!
