// The weekend!//
Ahhh I had such a great time these past few days.
With the dragon boat regatta, a lot of things are looking up for us even though the weather was soooo shitty. The last regatta, we had a qualifier race and a final where each race included someone breaking a shitty paddle that the race site provided for us. Clearly, we didn’t do so well in those races and our times weren’t great. This time, a lot of our rookies were able to fix their technique, we had no mishaps in the boat, and we were able to place 3rd in Division A finals! We even achieved a better time than we’ve had in a couple of years. Even though there were no medals (since 3rd out of 4 boats in this division wouldn’t make sense), we came out of that race proud being really close to taking second/first.
The rest of the weekend was just as great. A couple of us reconnected with an old teammate 2 nights early, hung around picnic-ing and such, and checking out Niagara Falls.
Because the driver loves One Direction…I now can’t get One Thing out of my head.
