Another successful season

The KILLARNEY DRAGON BOAT RACING CLUB (KDBRC) just keeps getting better. This year, our 7th, we floated two boats for the Rio Tinto Alcan Dragon Boat Festival. We were pleased to welcome our new coach, the outstanding paddler and junior coach, Gayle Gordon to our team. Gayle brought a wealth of experience and enthusiasm to the KDBRC family. We also welcomed Ms. Helen Wu, a student teacher at Killarney Secondary, to our family, and welcomed back former coach Michelle Ta. 42 students from Killarney, Kitsilano and Churchill secondary schools participated in the KDBRC this year. We raced in 3 regattas and placed well in each of them. We thank Clarkdale Volkswagen for their continuing help and sponsorship, and we look forward to more successes in the years to come.
