As the dragon boat season in the U.A.E. comes to an end for the summer, it is with great achievement and hard work that the SIBCA team placed 3rd overall in the Corporate (200m) category!

The end of season race was held in Ras Al Khaimah at Bin Majid Beach Resort on 25th and 26th April 2014. It was a beautiful setting for the races although the waters were rough which made for challenging race conditions. However, this did not deter the team as with each race SIBCA put up a strong fight! The 200m final was a tough one, going up against some of the more established teams but in the end, SIBCA just missed out on 2nd against Emirates Steel. The final times are as follows: 1st AD Mar (0:57:51). 2nd Emirates Steel (1:00:76), 3rd SIBCA (1:01:51), 4th Daman (1:02:04), 5th RAK Marine Club.

It may be the end of the season, but SIBCA will be training throughout the summer and preparing for the next season!
