Rotary Dragon Boat Regatta

Every year, the Rotary Club Cape of Good Hope invites companies to participate in their Annual Dragon Boat Festival. This is held at the Sandvlei Yacht Club, and 2013 marked the 7th of such events.

Teams compete for the coveted trophy, the day is packed with colourful events, and all the money raised this year goes to Cancer Related Organisations.

The amabeleBelles were generously sponsored to participate in this event. 10 Belles paddled three 250m races. It was a great day of racing, relaxing and relating…..all for a good cause!
