Year of the Dragon
In 2012 the Victoria Dragon Boat Festival celebrated the Year of the Water Dragon in style. Under cloudy skies, 82 teams gave it their all for a chance at glory, and posted some of the closest results ever seen in Victoria.
With less than a second between first and third place in the Mixed Platinum Division, local team the Gorging Dragons barely took the title from second place Dragon Hearts Ultimate and third place Sudden Impact Black.
Closer still was the Mixed Silver Championship, where the VCKC Ageless Warriors eked out a win over the Prevailing Wins by just 0.01 seconds. The real story of the day was the new Open Division, which recorded the fastest time ever in Victoria’s Inner Harbour – an unprecedented 1:50:96.
