On 7th June, paddlers from the Swire Dragons and Swire Dinosaurs teams gathered for a day of dragon boat racing at the Sun Life Stanley International Dragon Boat Championships.

The Swire Dragons, made up mainly of management trainee staff, put in months of diligent practice, in the hope of repeating their Gold Bowl Championship win from last year. Although most of the members were newbies to the sport, the team chemistry was apparent from the first warm-up race.

The team's hard work and perseverance paid off, with Swire Dragons coming home with two trophies, including the Hong Kong Institute of Surveyors 35th Anniversary Dragon Boat Cup and the Gold Bowl Final. A big shout-out should also go to the Swire Dinosaurs, consisting of senior executives and managers, who competed valiantly in the Gold Plate Final. On top of their great performances, the races gave participants from around the Swire group an opportunity to come together and bond. Both the Dragons and Dinosaurs cannot wait to come back again next year!
