Some photos from our first race of the year on March 11! Our boat made it into the semifinals. While our seniors crew landed 4th place in the grand finals.
- Team: Filipino Dragons (Singapore)
- Length: 100 meters
- Venue: Sports Hub Waterfront
- Team Boats: Four (3 mixed open, 1 mixed seniors)
- Placement: 4th in the Grand Finals (Seniors Crew), 1 mixed crew in the semis
We started the new training year off with sprints (our usual bread and butter is 500-meters and 200/250-meters). This was the inaugural 100-meter sprint under the Sports Hub and SDBA banners. Normally the first race of the year is the SAVA Sprints but that event has been postponed to May.
On a personal level, this was the first race I did not sit as a reserve. The captains/coach gave me a chance to paddle in every heat our small boat competed in. I think I also competed in every heat possible during last year’s Singapore River Regatta (SRR), but I was assigned as part of the FDS-SAVA Crew.
