The overall performance by the team paid off after spending several months of trainings every Saturday and Sunday since the start of the year to ensure that they were well prepared for the race. It was the hard work, resilience and the Can-Do spirit that drove and pushed the team to greater heights.

The KRC Dragon Boat Team will continue to train diligently and strive for greater results for the upcoming races. On behalf of the team, we would like to thank the KRC Committee for their fullest support to the team.
