I love Singapore River Regatta (SRR). Partly because, SRR is a 200m race! 300m race course, bearable. Anything more than that, it’s pain in my bum bum! Singapore Dragon Boat Festival used to have 800m race course – oh, I dread the most! Thanked God they shorten it to 500m. Can you imagine, you rowing 800m to the starting line then you row another 800m back to the finishing line? And that’s only the heats, you have Repecharge/semi finals and grand final! Mind you… That’s only 1 category. Usually we take part in 3 categories. Now, do your math. Running fast for 800m is tough, rowing is even tougher!
Desmond being Desmond, he booked a room for us to stay overnight after a day of long hard row! We were blessed by his hospitality and his generosity.
Season’s over. Peace.
