Dragonboat Festival at Brindley Place

This afternoon saw the racing of dragonboats along the Waters Edge of the canal at Brindley Place. A number of teams were entered and despite the rain at times enthusiasm was high as was the energy put into the rowing.

The winning team was from West Midlands Fire Service and runner-up was theteam from Harvey Nash . It’s a somewhat frenetic business with much noise emanating from the rowers to drive themselves towards victory, as as you can see from the photos below.
