    Attention, Dragon Boat ladies in Europe! Today we present our women's team Senior B / Senior C. These ladies started in Kunming at the World Championships in the Senior-A-Class and presented themselves there excellently. They have won the silver medal three times and have shown that even at a mature age, you can still achieve great achievements. This requires a good team with a special atmosphere. This is what our ladies have and the DDV is very proud of it. They are highly motivated and challenge all other European nations to the ENC in 2018. So what about your women's teams, whether Senior A, B or C. Who's coming to Brandenburg in August 2018?
