From Scaly Justice draogn boat team in Vancouver – Stuart Higginson, Sarah Glazzard and Linda Pleece
From Jericho paddling club – Craig Brown – longtime friend and original 1997 paddler on the Celebration/Gung Haggis team.

Good picture of drummer Deb steadying Tal, the cameraman, as he stood
up on the boat to get an overhead shot of the Gung Haggis paddlers.
B Final – our last race of the day
After a few practice starts for the camera, then a demonstration
race in C Final with a cameraman in seat 1 – it is fair to say we were
a bit tired for our B Final race.

after B Final – waving to the crowd!
The UA Power Dragons watched the races from the shoreline, and
chanted our names after the race. They have turned into our #1
cheering section. It was great to see such enthusiasm in a 1st
year team. I coach them on Saturday mornings.
