Leighton Dragon Boat team paddlers were back in the water on Sunday, 2 October 2022 to race over a 250-meter course at Stanley Beach in Hong Kong.
The team underwent training on the weekend over the past three months and won the third runner-up in the Silver Cup Final.

Each dragon boat consists of 20 paddlers and a drummer at the front and a steerer at the back. The paddler’s job is to keep their strikes in sync and paddle to the finish line with the support of the drummer and steerer.
Congratulations to the team on this great achievement and thank you to everyone who came to support us!
