Portland Rose Festival Dragon Boat Races

The Anniemaniacs didn’t compete in the Rose Festival this year, so we decided to get together and watch the finals. It was pretty windy, and the water level was very high from all this record rain we had been getting, so water conditions weren’t so stellar. We witnessed lots of flag catch misses (in semi and final races!) along with a flag catcher falling off the boat! I was rooting for Dumples to win the whole thing, but they ended up in 3rd to Synopsis and CCBA.

Sister city race, the Kaohsiung girls missed their flag :(, costing them first place. This was after they had made it back from a perpendicular start to the race course. Not the best experience for them.

The beach was completely underwater, but getting your boat this close to shore is a pretty big no no.
