Our team of 10 scouts and 1 cub enjoyed a fantastic day out at Wokingham Waterside Centre on Sunday, taking part in the Berkshire County Dragonboat Regatta. A total of 22 teams entered this year's regatta, a new record entry for this new event. The pirates aquitted themselve brilliantly in the first heat, winning by a few boat lengths to reach the semi finals. The semi final proved to be one of the fastest races of the day with less than a boat length between the 3 teams, despite heroic efforts from the whole crew they were unable to overhaul a strong team from 5th Woodley. A really good scouting event which can be recommended to all sections for future years, well done guys we (Zed and Purp) thoroughly enjoyed a great day out.
