Dragon Boat Race Victory For The Waterproof Warriors

An Unforgettable Day at Fairhaven Lake

The Waterproof Warriors were crowned champions at the Dragon Boat Race held at Fairhaven Lake, Lytham St Annes on Saturday 18th May. Hosted by the Blue Skies Hospitals Fund, this year’s event saw 25 enthusiastic teams competing in a series of thrilling races.

Each team participated in three races, with the four fastest teams advancing to the final showdown. Our Waterproof Warriors, stood out not just for our paddling prowess but also for our creative flair. Our team embraced a whimsical theme with our drummer dressed as a chicken and the rest of the team sporting fried egg costumes. This quirky ensemble certainly turned heads!

The Waterproof Warriors team of 17 comprised of our JR roofing Lancs Limited team, NFRC Competent Person Scheme, North West Roofing Supplies, The Fylde Tradesmen, and Seaside Group Plumbing & Heating.

It was a day filled with camaraderie, competitive spirit, and community support.

Race Performance

Our performance on the water was nothing short of spectacular. We won two out of our three preliminary races. We also achieved the fastest time of the day—52 seconds—in our very first dragon boat race. This momentum carried us into the final race, where we emerged victorious, securing the title of champions. Our team received an award with each member also receiving a medal, commemorating our triumphant effort.
