GEMO a.s. finishes 3rd at the dragon boat races at Plumlov

The tenth annual Plumlov Dragon boat races were held at U Vrbiček beach at the Plumlov Reservoir over the weekend of 24-25 August 2018. Our three crews competed in the ‘Company’ category for the first time this year,   and one of them earned an impressive third-place finish in Saturday’s 200 m sprint for large dragon boats!  Our teams made another impressive showing in Sunday’s 200 m sprint for small dragon boats, finishing fourth and fifth.

Composed mostly of newcomers, all three GEMO crews awakened their inner dragon and under the slogan "Building and Having Fun" turned in great sporting performances with team spirit. Crew members and their families all reported having a wonderful time over the company weekend.

Large dragon boats have a crew of twenty, the smaller version ten, both including a drummer and a coxswain.
