2006 British (BDA) National Championship Results

01 November 2006

close 500m final.
The GB National Finals took place on Saturday 7th & Sunday 8th October 2006 at the National Water Sport Centre based at Holme Pierrepont, Nottingham. Conditions for the weekend were poor, with strong head winds causing the programme to become delayed throughout as boats struggled to hold position at the starting pontoons. At one point a reading was taken on the strength of the wind and it was reported to be gusting at gale force 7.

In spite of the blustery conditions, Liverpool-based Amathus DBC paddled away with the Victor Ladorum Trophy for the overall best team of the finals. Contributing to this "best of" victory was Amathus’ win in the 500m major open cup final (in what was an incredibly very close final, 0.01 hundredths of a sec between 1st & 2nd and only 0.12 hundredths of a sec between 1st & 3rd) and the Amathus Junior’s capture of the Under 18’s trophy.

Hertfordshire’s Batchworth Dragons won the 200m & 1000m Open Cups and London´s Kingston Royals took home the National Mixed and Women´s championship trophies.

Separate to these BDA National Championships, the BDA also runs a National League competition. This occurs through the season which lasts from April to September, with nine National League rounds that take place at various locations throughout the UK. Amathus Open & Amathus Bees are respective champions of the BDA´s Premier & Standard Leagues for 2006 and Amathus Open tied with Batchworth Dragons for 1st place in the Premier League.

    Dear friends of the Dragon Boat Community of Europe, to be a “community” means to be a team, to be friends, to know each other and to support each other. In my visit in Armenia I met people that love our sport, that want to grow, that want to develop also the social part with a specific adaptive dragon boat project. Last week end some Armenian Athlets were in Spain and next Monday ArmDBF will enter the EDBF EC 2018 in Brandenburg. Happy birthday to the President of the Armenian Dragon Boat Federation, Makar Sargsyan, today 32 year old and my best wishes to continue in his commitment for our sport. #newgenerations Claudio Schermi EDBF President

    Berlino - meeting with the Organizing Committee of the next European Nations Championships in Brandenburg from 23 to 26th August. With me Slawek Borucki, in his key role within our sport. He is responsible for registration, race program and EDBF web site. Ute Becker and Gitta Weber are doing a great job and all details and criticism are under control. A lot of provisional Entries and other are expected very soon. Looking forward to see in Brandenburg all the top Paddlers of the dragon boat community of Europe. Following the request received we will reconsider the possibility to add the class open in Senior C standard boat. Claudio Schermi EDBF President
