Harrison Regatta sees 70 dragon boat teams

Released by Glenda Thoma, Fraser Valley Dragon Boat Club



he Fraser Valley Dragon Boat Club's 8th Annual Harrison Regatta was a huge success with amazing races and awesome weather.

The regatta had 70 teams competing with the fastest mixed team, One West from False Creek, taking home the Gold with a time of 1:56. The Dralions from Kelowna, took the women's Gold with a time of 2:27.

The home teams from Fraser Valley Dragon Boat Club all competed well against a competitive field. The 'Mavericks' placed 10th overall out of 49 mixed teams while the club's newest team 'Wrecking Crew' took home a Bronze Medal in the 'B' Division final. Awesome team work!

The Club would like to thank everyone who contributed their time and effort including the Regatta Committee; all the volunteers, sponsors, vendors and entertainers; and the 70 participating teams for helping to make this Regatta exciting and fun.
