It was all eyes on the Bay when speeding dragon boats took to the water for the 20th Annual San Francisco International Dragon Boat Festival off of Treasure Island last Saturday & Sunday, September 19th & 20th, 2015.
Were you there witnessing and cheering on the fleet of colorful 40-foot dragon boats as they raced to the beat of Chinese drums?
Over 120 dragon boat teams comprised of nearly 3,000 paddlers representing teams that included local corporations and non-profits as well as competitive teams from across the United States and Canada. The Express Dragons, an employee team,represented Team S.F. Express, a first year sponsor and participant of the event.
Dragon Boat Racing is the essence of a team sport. Success is only possible with the precise synchronization of all rowers. Our Dragon Express Team showed their strong teamwork and communication skills by continuing to improve in each race. With a 6th place finish in the first race, the Express Dragons moved up to 3rd in the second race and finally 4th the third race of the day.
The mood was very positive and teammates encouraged each other to give their best effort. “A fourth place finish still felt like a win to us. We came together as novices to learn and train together to represent our team. We fought against competition which included longtime corporate teams like HSBC, Chevron, Deloitte, LinkedIn, Google and more. At the end of the day we felt we were winners. “
