New Years Ride 2012

The beginning is over!

Like in previous years the new year of Prague Dragon Boat Club started with a New Year's Ride.

A group of 30 people - members of PDBC, MZV and Pres-Li tym dragon boats teams supported by non-dragon boater sailed to Vltava river on two boats. One hong-kong style and one indonesian. We made the ride from our boathouse on Cisarska louka island through the Smíchov lock down the stream up to Charles bridge(Karlův most) and to the Čertovka river. Čertovka is one of the most romantic parts of the Oldtown and from water you can see it in complete new view. For example you are able to almost touch the wheel from water mill!

Our boats equipped with Chinese lanterns were in focus of all the people near river and on the bridges. And they were also in focuses of their cameras! Our boats attracted few of them so much that they decided to join us in our ride. We would like to thank to those tourists from France and Georgia that they shared the spirit of the New Year's ride with us! We wish them that the dragon spirit is with them for all the year 2012!

What to say at the end? The weather was good (9°C) with no wind, no big waves. We experienced few hours together in boats paddling surrounded by our beautiful city! What a start of a new year!!!

Our thanks to everyone who joined us and we are looking forward to see you on other public or club events that are in front of us!
