Paddlers for Life new dragon boat had its first outing.
Paddlers for Life members and fellow paddlers from the local NHS participated in an Olympic Torch rehearsal on a beautiful warm and calm May evening.
Two full crews with helms and drummers paddled four miles from Low Wood Bay to Bowness-on-Windermere.
We met with the steamship ‘Tern’ which will carry the Olympic Torch from Wateredge to Bowness on the 21st. June as part of the Olympic Torch relay.
With our new boat leading on one side and Lucy at Low Wood on the other side we paddled 500m closely accompanying ‘Tern’ to the pier.
It will make a splendid site for the onlookers in June.
