Dragon Boat Team Wins Gold at Regional Championships

21 Mar Dragon Boat Team Wins Gold at Regional Championships

Pakuranga College’s dragon boat team competed in the Auckland Regional Championships on Sunday, racing in the 500m and 200m competition.

The team made a good showing in the 500m heats, reaching the grand final. They then contended strongly for silver before coming away with the bronze medal position.

In the 200m heats the team initially struggled to get pace and timing right, but still qualified for the grand final. In worsening conditions with a strong crosswind and awkward chop the team then pulled it together for their best performance of the day, winning gold by a convincing margin.

Well done to all paddlers, and thanks to staff members Mr Smith, Ms Voss and Mr Merchant for making it all happen.
