Dragonboating with a World Champion!

Hey Expat Friends,

Due to the popular demand we do the dragonboating again!  As now we ve booked 2 boats, there will be a possibility to:

1) dragonboat and exercise - boat number 1

2) travelling in a dragonboat and taking photos of the city from the river with stops - boat 2

A very unique opportunity to try dragon boating, as our coach will be a Youth World Cup and European Championship winner, Mr. Szaszak Denes from Hungary.

The venue: http://www.streetdirectory.com/asia_travel/...

Gathering at 4,00 and start with warm up, followed by about a 1,5 hour paddling together, with exercise. (We do not get into the water, no worries).

What do you need? 1,5 litre water to drink, sport clothes, a towel, slippers or flip flop.

You will have the opportunity to see the city from the water. As a reward, a beer/softdrink is awaiting for us!

Costs: $ 22/pax (boat rental, paddles, life wests, beer/soft drink, buns and a couple of great coaches!)

After paddling, (or just sitting in the boat to take photos), we can go together to have a proper dinner together!

I think most of us will be a first timer at this sport,  don t miss it!

See you on Saturday,

Kris

    It is a very good experience. I'm supposed to only taking picture and have fun. However, peddling actually is a lot more fun..:)

    May I suggest that for next time, we form small groups of 5-10 before the event day and a group leader is designated so that the rest knows exactly who to contact and make it easier to gather. Saves one person from being the sole point of contact, which can be hellish.

    Hi folks, important message, you will have to walk 200 meter further to the venue,

    Please be there at the Mrt station in time if you don t know the way, then you can walk to the place together. Have fun!
