Alcan Dragon Boat Race

Drove up to Vancouver, BC for the Rio Tinto Alcan Dragon Boat Festival. My team, the Anniemaniacs, did pretty awesome and ended up in 12th place out of 96 teams, 2nd best of the Portland teams to attend. Unfortunately, we didn’t medal because we got 4th by hundredths of a second in our Division. However, since we made it into the top 2 divisions, we got the privilege to compete in the Guts and Glory race, a 2000m race involving two laps and three turns. Super fun for a tiller like myself. I want a rematch though!
