Blazing Paddles race to the Final!

On a very sunny Saturday at the end of June, Egniol’s Blazing Paddles Dragon Boat team took to Llyn Padarn, Llanberis, for the annual St David’s Hospice Dragon Boat Festival, raising money for this excellent cause. The team was a mix of seasoned veterans and new-comers, backed by a wonderful BBQ courtesy of Egniol’s Chairman, Peter Dilworth (ably assisted by Alan and David!). A total of 19 crews were on the water for the 2018 event, a wide mixture in abilities with some fierce competition from previous winners and competitors alike.

In the face of this competition, Blazing Paddles set 4th fastest time overall in their final heat, booking a place in the final for the fourth time in five years. With a keen wind blowing down from Llanberis Pass, the final was a very close affair, with all 4 crews finishing within 2 seconds of one another (less than a boats length!). Despite a valiant effort and strong, coordinated paddling, Egniol finished 4th overall, narrowly missing out on the medal places but less than a second.

A great day was had by all and a big thank you to everyone involved, and everyone that donated to the cause.  If anyone wishes to contribute to our fundraising effort, please visit our JustGiving page for the event at: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/egniolenvironmental18

The team are already looking forward to improving their performance in 2019, with medals firmly in their sight.
