On the 15th June, at the height of our British summer, amidst promised torrential rain, we took part in the annual Grosvenor Dragon Boat Regatta, held at the Crown Plaza, Marlow.
Some 27 Dragon Boats took part in the Regatta. Our team, led by Mike Stevens, were also fortunate to be joined by enthusiastic staff members from Hurst Peirce and Malcolm, Edward Pearce and Thompson Cole.
Despite the inclement weather, our beginners demonstrated fine team spirit and enthusiasm. Against stiff competition from Grosvenor, Capita, Thompson Cole, EPP & HPM, Grangewood’s “Novice” Dragon Boat Team eventually came an outstanding 4th.
