It is always wonderful to be joined by a dragon boater from another club but sadly, on this occasion, the Scottish weather was against us. So coffee in the centre of Edinburgh would have to suffice.
Yang-Wahn paddles with the Chinese International School Alumni Dragon Boat Team and was in Edinburgh to attend an international legal conference and generously brought us some items from his club and took home one of our hoodies.
The Chinese International School Alumni Dragon Boat Team was formed in 1983 and has since 2006 had a very active and enthusiastic dragon boat team focusing on Mixed boat races. Last year, coached by Hong Kong legend Lee Mussi, they achieved their best ever result in HK, winning the Stanley International Dragon Boat Mixed Championships by coming 1st out of 197 boats. With Lee's help the club will be returning to defend their title this year..
We hope that many more Dragon Boaters will take the opportunity to come out with us - if the Scottish weather is on our side!!
