All sitting in the same boat – with full power ahead in the dragon boat

A team from GRP and FLS took part in this year’s dragon boat race at the Rursee in Woffelsbach!

Since 13 years a dragon boat race takes place at the picturesque Rursee in the Eifel. Organized and held by the association “Wassersportfreunde Aachen (WSA)” it always takes place in June. Four years ago the GRP decided to combine their summer party with the dragon boat race and for two years now the FLS has been part of it. Together the employees of both companies paddle as one team.

For success at the dragon boat race you only need motivation and commitment besides water and the boat. All this the colourful mixed team put in its three rounds against three opponents each and was able to secure a good 16th place in the overall standings of the day. With 32 teams we were in the golden mean this year.

The day was marked by healthy ambition, but above all by fun. And also the weather – after threatening clouds in the morning – was good for us. Until late in the evening it remained mild and dry, so that one could end the day comfortably at the Aftershow-Party.

But for next year our ambition is awakened: With a secret training plan we will start the preparation and then we will paddle into the top 10!
