Happy New Year
On that note, the EDBF would like to thank all those whose hard work, both locally and internationally, has been instrumental in guiding and developing the dragon boat sport we love. Special thanks are due to Mike Haslam, the IDBF Executive President and EDBF President, whose untiring efforts over the years have led us from small beginnings to GAISF membership and along the path to our next goal: membership in the Olympic movement.
Within Europe, we wish the hosts of the World Dragon Boat Championships, Czech Republic, and the hosts of the European Club Crew Championships, Hungary, successful and well-attended championships as the reward to the hard work that they will put into organizing these championships this year.
To the paddlers and supporters of the sport around the globe, may your hard work both on and off the water be rewarded with medals, friendships and satisfaction for a job well done.
Happy New Year from the EDBF website team: Kim Beckwith (content) and Stefan Jager (technical)!
