Hours of planning and a day of preparation saw paddlers approaching Bowness in an oriental extravaganza of a Dragon Boat.
Hooray!, we won the shield for the best team entry!! Go, Paddlers for Life.

Our two boats are securely lashed together thanks to Roger. The decorating begins on the Chinese theme of red and gold chosen by Barbara and Elaine.

Tent poles are hooped over the Dragon Boats to make a structure we can decorate.

We muster with other boats and then two tours of Bowness Bay receive a warm response from onlookers. Then we're off back to Low Wood courtesy of a tow from Karl and Harry.
