This Saturday was the annual Dragon Boat races in the Wet Dock. The races set three teams against each other with their individual times logged. Then, depending on the times, the next and following rounds take place. Hence, coming last in your race won’t necessarily drop you out.
Unfortunately, for the casual observer, it is a bit like the Strongest Man competition a couple of weeks ago in that it gets a bit repetitive unless you have a personal interest. The teams are all made up from individual companies in the town so, for instance, Hunnaball – the undertakers – had a team.
Here is the start of one heat.
Here is one way to watch the races.
There were quire a few “concessions” around either promotional or food vending.
Now for the action.
