News from beautiful, sunny Shanghai.
Teams from Canberra, Newcastle, U.S. and our favourites the Philippines, plus many more from China and Taiwan were entered into this regatta.
BRD won the 3k turn race by 6 seconds, first in our heat in the 500m and just pipped at the post in the grand final by .16sec. Tough paddling!
BRD were the winners of the overall points for the Festival!
Not a bad result for a long weekend away and in tens boats and competing against premier paddlers!!
BRD would love to be invited back again next year to Qingpu, a beautiful, friendly city.
Indications are that many more invitations to race at other overseas events maybe forth coming from clubs we have met here.
Congratulations go to the BRD team.
