An Improved result for One Team, One Boat, brings “Silver” in the 2017 Dragon Boat Challenge

On Sunday (4th June) we entered a team in the North and Western Chamber of Commerce, Dragon Boat Challenge, with this year’s crew having some debutants as well as some of the old masters from last year’s fourth place team -not bad at all for our first attempt!

The experience from last year made a massive difference and the improvement was incredible. After coming second to the eventual winners in the first round, Team AM won the three remaining attempts and went into the three-boat final outing as the second fastest boat. The One Team, One Boat crew would have been satisfied with just reaching the final but a superb display in the final saw Team AM push the eventual winners to the line.

The team were disappointed but satisfied, with some members of the winning team asking where the AM team held their training (what training?!) Apparently, the winning team train once a week for events around the country.

All colleagues and family members who enjoyed the day out were well proud of the effort and teamwork shown. Well Done.
