Gong Xi Fa Cai and News about Clipper Sunday on 29th January 2012
GONG XI FA CAI! | LAND TRAINING | CLIPPER SUNDAY
1) GONG XI FA CAI!
As we are about to enter the year of the Dragon in its Water year we are certainly looking forward to a very auspicious racing season for the British Dragons.
We would like to wish all our team members, sponsors and supporters: Gong Xi Fa Cai!.
We will be training on the water at Kallang as usual this Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd January 2012 (Coach Jason says that we will not need to bring Trainers for the Sunday morning training this week).
Please note that on Wednesday 25th January 2012 we will be doing Land Training
outside the Singapore Indoor Stadium (as Farrer Park Pool will be closed for the Chinese New Year holidays).
We will be training at the entrance steps to the Indoor Stadium which are directly over the road from the exit from Stadium MRT (CC6 on the Circle Line). Here is the location: http://g.co/maps/46xc6
If you are driving you can use Car Park E. Please wear Trainers for the Land Training.

3) CLIPPER SUNDAY
Training on Sunday 29th January will be at the later time of 3.30pm (for 4.00pm on the water) for a very special reason.
We will be hosting a visit from some of the crew members of the Edinburgh and Gold Coast yachts (including our Ladies’ Captain’s brother) who are currently half-way through sailing around the world in the Clipper Round the World 11-12 Yacht Race.
The Clipper crews will join us for training during their Singapore stopover and we’ll end the session with a race or two!
We would love to see as many of you there as possible to welcome the crews and take part in this special training session. Please let one of the Captain’s know this weekend if you can take part so that they can plan the event.
After training we will make our way to RedDot, Dempsey for a few beers and dinner and doubtless many war stories about the relative merits of racing Dragon Boats and Clippers. Please come and help us to make the Clipper crews’ Singapore stopover a very memorable one!
Wishing you all the best for the holidays and I hope to see you at training this weekend,
Philip N. Morgan – Team Secretary
British Dragons – Singapore
