This Saturday is a dragon boat regatta at Barnet Marine Park – lots of fun. It is organized by Lotus Sports Club. Although the “team” isn't ready to race yet – lots of fun to come out and “experience” a 20 team regatta – lots of opportunities to help volunteer with the organizers as I will be doing. We will come out to Lotus after the Alcan race in June to try outrigger paddling. Race is located at Barnet Marine Park – off Barnet Hwy – just east of Kask Brothers Cement, after Hastings St turns into Barnet Hwy. This event is free.

Sunday, practice is 12 noon at Dragon Zone. This is the green trailer beside the Aqua bus dock. It is immediately south of Science World. We are having 3 practices here on Sundays now. We are using these days as our race preparation days to rehearse what will happen on race day. On June 6th we are entered in a regatta here. Expect about 8 teams unloading and 8 teams loading – lots of confusion.
