Phantom Dragons Host BlindStart Paddlers in Arizona

SubstandardFullSizeRenderThe Phantom Dragons were joined by four paddlers from the BlindStart program in the recent Arizona Dragon Boat Festival.  It was honor to have them as part of our crew, and fun getting to know them a little better at our team dinner Saturday night.

Check out this great article and video by a local news station that was doing a feature on the BlindStart Paddlers.  The Phantom Dragons were prominently featured in a good part of the video footage!

 

 

Phantom Dragons Race in Arizona

Congratulations to the Phantom Dragons for their strong showing in the Arizona Dragon Boat Festival held March 28-29, 2K15. Short-handed for the event (as usual), the Phantoms crew had some much appreciated help.  Its Mixed Crew was far more “mixed” than most, with three countries and eight+ individual teams represented in its ranks.

Although the Phantom Dragons didn’t quite make it to the medal round this year, they did post a team best 500-meter time of 2:17.  This year’s Arizona Festival was a very competitive event.  Check out the full Race Results

Many thanks to everyone who raced w/ the Phantom Dragons. Special paddle salute to Kamini Jain and her RAP paddlers for helping fill out our crew, and for giving the Phantoms’ female paddlers a chance to race w/ them in the Womens Division (in which her two teams won silver and bronze medals in the Women’s B)!  Also a shout out to the four Blindstart paddlers who added some incredible strength to our mix!  Thanks, too, to the San Diego Dragon Boat Team members who raced w/ the Phantom Dragons in the 250s, and allowed Captain Bligh to run w/ their Masters crew.  And lastly, paddle salute to Lady Di and Rho, who  got to run the 1000m race w/ the Golden Dragons. Fun stuff!

Here is a few photo taken at the event (courtesy of Kwok de La Luna for those he shared on Facebook – more to come on his web site soon)!
