Abreast With Rocky Point Marshalling at Spring Knock Outs
9 years ago when I was diagnosed with breast cancer it would never have crossed my mind that such a scary negative event would lead me to such a great positive opportunity in my life as dragon boating.
Dragon boating has changed my life and given me opportunities that I would never have had. I have raced in Malaysia, the Queens Jubilee and the Lake District. I have met interesting and lovely people that I would never have had the opportunity to meet.
Dragon boating is a team sport. Everyone must give all that their physical abilities allow them to give. Saturday our team, Rocky Point did just that. We raced 4 times back to back, every person on that boat, reached, dug deep and gave all that they had to give. I am proud to be part of this team.
