Anticipation of the Peterborough IBCPC BCS dragon boat paddling festival in Canada.
When we’re in the boats, every one of us (regardless of age, health, strength or experience) is as strong as the whole team, and most importantly we’re planning for the future and where that will take us. 2010 is our third paddling season and will be hugely significant as, for the first time, the team will be taking part in an international festival of dragon boating, taking place in Peterborough, Ontario (Canada). This “Celebration of Life” is specifically an event for breast cancer survivors and will welcome an astonishing 65 crews from all over the world. The flags will be flying, the excitement will be tremendous, and WE’LL BE THERE, representing Low Wood, Cumbria, the UK … and the many personal achievements that have got us all this far.
It feels like we’re going to the Olympics, and it feels like we’re going to be amazing!
So, with ?? days to go, how is it taking us today?
The flags will be flying, the excitement will be tremendous, and WE’LL BE THERE, representing Low Wood, Cumbria, the UK.“I’m excited about where we’re heading – we look good already!”
