2017 / September / 02
It started off as a very foggy morning at the Sydney International Regatta Centre, in Penrith. This was the first official race of the season, with 200m sprints, a favourite for many clubs and paddlers.
For our mixed races we fought well with 3rd and 2nd places in the heats but unfortunately may have just missed out on finals.
Naga’s Womens and Mens / Opens crews combined for the first time with Pacific Dragons, nicknaming us PAGA. Our PAGA men with 2nd place in both heats got an invitation in the finals, and although battled their hearts out against very fierce competition, no medal placement. The women’s PAGA crew also place 2nd in both heats, and in the finals scored 3rd place BRONZE narrowly beating 4th place crew by .01 of a second!
Both clubs were very happy with the results on the day, especially considering that we had not trained much together!
