Dragonboat Racing

Saturday was a well filled day: grandma's birthday-visit in the morning, the wedding-anniversary of Harmen and Annet in the afternoon and evening. Grandma lives in Germany, Harmen and Annet in Groningen -> so this meant a ride by car of about 600 km's... Nevertheless it was a nice day, topped by a canoe-intermezzo on the Paterswoldsemeer. Harmen and Annet invited the unprepared wedding guests for a little Dragonboat-race. This was a big surprise for the guests, most of them were dressed for a stylish party in the atmosphere of the Societeit Clubhuis. My motto is: don't leave the house with a set of sportswear (and a towel) in the car! You never know...
Jelle and Lieke knew the Dragonboats from the Jubilee of KV Wyrda a year ago. It were the same boats of the EHDC.

Hans,

When you have more time, please stay a little longer on the Paterswoldse meer.
When I was young(er) I was member of the VWDTP, the Society and we did a lot of competion Sailing in our Flits.
On the other side of the Lake: called Hoornse Meer you will find the GKV (GroningerCanoeClub).
Seems you missed the spot.You have to pass by an culvert, in order to come to the club.

Well maybe one day we can show you around a little bit.
Regards Jörgen
