Chasing the Dragon
The Red Kites, a team from Gerald Simonds, took part in the recent Dragon Boat Races held at the Docklands Sailing and Watersports Centre in London. The event was held in aid of Back-Up, the charity devoted to transforming lives after spinal cord injury, and teams from thirteen organisations, including city banks and solicitors took part.

After a briefing which covered paddling technique and safety on the water, the Red Kites boarded their Dragon boat for their first heat, headed for the start line and managed to come first! After the first round of races the Red Kites were placed fourth overall and made it into the ‘top six’ final where they finished the event a creditable fifth overall. The team were especially pleased to improve their timings significantly in each race.

The Gerald Simonds team has so far raised a total of over £1700.00 in sponsorship to help support Back-Up in their important work.
