Dragon Boating 31/05/2005

Off to Crossharbour on the DLR for this 8th day event, 40 of us got kitted out enough for two boats. After a little bit of practice we set off on a race. We narrowly beat the other boat coming from behind. Second time around, things went a bit pear shaped. We nearly went in on the right and then the boat went fully in on the left.
I managed to climb on top of the boat as it went over but Nick got stuck under for a few seconds. We all got rescued by the rescue boat which apparently was probably responsible for our ducking by getting to close. Afetr getting dry it was off to the bar to kill any nasty bugs we might have picked up with alcohol.
