This summer George Brown College’s (GBC) dragon boat club took part in the regattas in Milton and Pickering. After managing to grab first place in the 200 metre B Uni division and second in the C Uni division, the Huskies’ winning streak was broken at the 2015 nationals when they were placed 10th.
Lisa Tai, head coach for the Dragon Boat Club, is more excited for the opportunities the paddlers had than the medals won. “What is exciting about competitions is we get to experience true dragon boat racing against other university teams.” Tai said. “If we win a medal at the end of the regatta, it is a bonus.”
The dragon boat club will be recruiting new paddlers in September and students who have questions or are interested in joining are encouraged to contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
