Dragon boats

In my late break at work this evening, I hopped on the Hmmersmith and City line to Paddington, to watch some of the dragon boat racing on a stretch of the Paddington Arm.

There were numerous teams taking part, many in fancy dress or team outfits.  The course itself was very short, taking between 30 and 40 seconds for each race, and everyone seemed to enjoy being yelled at by the instructors from the company organising it.

Nice to see what we just missed as we left the basin on the Monday.

I'm glad that Indigo Dream wasn't there - I'm sure the Richard would have wanted to race them!
