On Sunday May 19, icubed consulting paddled into the Minor Finals at the 2019 Corporate Games Dragon Boat Racing held at Northshore, Hamilton. While this was team Dragon Cubed Z’s second year competing in the Corporate Games, 2019 saw a lot of new faces jump into the dragon boat.
Inclement weather early in the day saw the team battling choppy water, but it was the final qualifying heat that turned out to be the most dramatic of the day, with the team going into battle with another dragon boat. As the rival team began to steer across Dragon Cubed Z’s path, paddles clashed, and each team fought to maintain its lead and remain upright.
While not coming out completely unscathed, the team did at least manage to remain dry this year – a win in itself for those who were having traumatic flash backs of last year’s cold topple into the Brisbane River.
Thanks to all the supporters who came out to cheer on the team. With all our co-workers, friends and family, a great day was had by all.
