Firsts for our Dragon Boat Team

June 22, 2014 is an important date for the Alumni Association. Its Dragon Boat team, established in early 2014 , is the first one formed by members of the ESF community and the first under the name of an alumni association of an ESF school. Its coach and the great majority of team members are Sha Tin alumni. It took part in its first public race on 22 June. With almost all members new to the sport and the limited number of team practice and training, the team has no aspiration to come first in any public competition at this stage. Yet through good team work, strong determination to do the best they can, they successfully went through the first two rounds and came 5th place in the third round of races in the Hong Kong Dragon Boat Short Race held in Stanley. A total of 41 teams took part in a variety of races on the occasion.
The event is much more than team competitions. As shown in the photos, it is a colourful, lively and joyful fiesta attended by large numbers of friends, colleagues and family members. The Alumni Association ran a tent as meeting point for alumni and their friends and family members to meet. Three current students from the college volunteered their service as photographers, with one traveling all the way from home in Yuen Long to Stanley at 05:00 in the morning.
Emilie, the Team Manager and Alistair, the coach have high hope that with further support by alumni as team members and in financial sponsorship and in spirit, the team will soon achieve another first by winning a champion trophy in the near future.
