Dragon Boat Racing on the Thames

Scouts from both Merlins and Buzzards sections entered the Berkshire Dragon Boat Regatta at the Wokingham Waterside Centre on the 8th June. They were joined by 250 others for a glorious summer day on the Thames. With grit, determination and the usual amount of competition shown between the two 1st Woosehill sections, Merlins managed to secure a place in the semi-finals. However, getting their hands on the Trophy was not to be this year. 1st Wokingham took home the Scout Trophy through an excellent display of coordinated paddling.

Despite the lack of silverware, everyone enjoyed the day, basking in the Berkshire sunshine between races and taking advantage of the refreshments, especially the Ice Creams.
