Congratulations to SIBCA Serpents for winning the Corporate Bowl at The 6th Annual Shangri-La Abu Dhabi Dragon Boat Festival which was held on the 11th and 12th October 2013.

There were over 20 companies competing in the corporate category which is a 200m sprint distance. It was SIBCA’s first time to enter a team and with great teamwork we were able to place!

Dragon Boating is a fun and competitve watersport which originates from China. It is a long boat which seats 20 people plus a steersperson. It is essential for the paddlers to work together and move in time to propel the boat forward. This sport is growing in popularity all over the world as it is a great way to incorporate fitness and teamwork.

SIBCA hopes to continue to participate in many more races throughout the season in the U.A.E. so stay tuned!
