Where Were The Gaelics At?!

Do you know where the Gaelic Dragons were at the last weekend?! Well, some of the crew flew to the paradise island of Boracay to represent Singapore Barbarians along with the paddlers from different Singapore IDBC teams for the 11th Boracay International Dragon Boat Festival.

They scooped their way to victory receiving their trophies and medals. Here is a report from your captains, for the Gaelics Dragons as Singapore Barbarians this weekend:

29 Gaelics (including honorary Gaelics) jetted off to Boracay with the Singapore Barbarians last week, forming 1/3 of the entire Barbarian team. We all had a brilliant time and ended the trip with some blings to bring back to Singapore. 

 

Opening Ceremony – Team Performance Champions (Choreographed by Richard, Zai, Jesse): 

Singapore Barabrians became the first team to win the new Team Performance perpetual trophy. The pressure is now on to win again for the next two years so that the Barbarians get to keep the trophy and bring it back to Singapore. 

Lots of Gaelics were involved in the dance, including the brilliant performance of the coconut dance by Richard, Jesse, Phil and EL. 

 

On the water:

Ladies 500m 22 crew Gold  (Jess, Aoife, Zai, Ali, Briyah, Julie)

Ladies 250m 22 crew Silver  (Jess, Aoife, Ali, Briyah, Zai, Alina) 

Ladies 250m 12 crew Silver  (Jess, Zai, Aoife)

 

Massive thanks go to Sarah Kamp for organising the Barbarian team and making sure that we all had a great time in Boracay.  

 

Within the Gaelics, thanks to everyone who helped out over the weekend: 

– Briyah and Alina who volunteered to attend the race managers meeting on behalf of the Barbarians

– Everyone who helped with packing and carrying paddles to and from the beach each day in our amazing new paddle bags!

– Dusko who seemed to become team doctor for the weekend

– Andrew Baker for leading the capsize recovery effort for the Barbarian boats (and for being amazingly awesome on cheering everyone before and after a race, and sprinting back and forth the beach to get what paddlers needed – buy this guy a drink if you see him) 

 

It was a weekend with lots of firsts for the many: first race, first time pacing or drumming, first time to race in the sea, first time (and in some cases 2nd or 3rd time!) to capsize, or first time to be race boat captains. We hope you all enjoyed the chance to try something new – everyone who was asked to do something stepped up and did it brilliantly!

 

The rivalry and support between the Singapore Barbarians and Filipino Dragons Singapore (FDS) was fantastic, leading to nail-bitingly close races between the teams! Congrats to FDS on their gold medal in the 250m ladies 22crew race. The trophies for both the 250m and 500m ladies 22crew races are in Singapore! 

 

While in Boracay, the Gaelics donated many of our old life vests to a new team in the Philippines, the Cebu Dragons. It seems appropriate that they also have green race shirts!

Here are some snaps of the mighty craic…

The Annual Amazing Race

by Lighthouse Club Singapore

Gaelic Dragons were also winning races this weekend by taking part in the Annual Amazing Race organised by the Lighthouse Club Singapore!  Three teams were represented in GD Paddles Up, GD Kick Arse and GD Go Gaelics!  Winning the event was GD Paddles Up and coming in second was the GD Kick Arse!  Last but not least, Jenny O’Brien of GD Go Gaelics scored a bottle of champagne sponsored by AAM Advisory!

Well done and a big thank you from Nuala and the Lighthouse Club for supporting this charity event organised by her and the club!

The Gaelic Dragons Logo

posted in: Uncategorized | 0
 

The Gaelic Dragons Logo

A Sign of Unity and Continuity

The significance of Gaelic language and culture originated in Gaelic Ireland and southwest Scotland. Irish is a Celtic language, as is Scottish Gaelic, Manx Gaelic (Manx), Welsh, Breton and Cornish. David Beattie, our Founder, was of Welsh origin.

The Logo consists of three parts that are of Celtic Origin:

 

The Red Celtic Serpent Dragon

This is a sign of immortality. The sea serpent dragon is a giant wingless serpent. A symbol of power and wisdom among leaders. The  serpent dragon has its tail pointing towards its mouth. The serpent dragon is twisted upon itself, with its tail, ears and body parts weaving in and out of the Celtic Brooch. This symbolizes the cycle of nature in the world and immortality.

 

The Celtic Brooch

The Celtic brooch, more properly called the penannular brooch, is a type of clothes fastener, often rather large. “Annular” means formed as a ring and “penannular” formed as an incomplete ring. The Celtic Brooch is to be worn on the upper chest like the Celtic Warriors’ tattoo and is a logo or a sign of intimidation to our competitors.

 

The Celtic Knot for Unity

 

The pattern on the Brooch is a Celtic Knot or endless knot. It represents a never ending path and is often said to represent “permanence and the continuum of life.” The spiral arrangement contains equal numbers of whorls going each way and are thus in balance. The Triskelion is found at one end of the Pin. It represents the Past, Present and Future.

David Beattie wanted unity in the team. This was the only way to ensure continuity as members come and go. To him, it was important for all members in the team to have fun while we strive to be competitive during our races. Members have to stay united and share a common understanding. The pattern chosen is the Four-Cornered Knot. It looks like the Four Leave Clover which is a symbol of Good Luck. This is an essential element for every competitive race we go for.

IT’S TIME!

IT’S TIME!

This weekend marks the end of the Singapore race season with the much anticipated River Regatta – arguably the best race of them all (I know I say that about every race, but FOR REAL this time guys)! We have pushed ourselves more as a team in these past few months than ever before and now is the time to prove it was worth it. Racers, please check your inbox this week for the upcoming race mail which will detail everything you need to know about the weekend. Non-races, start practicing your cheer as we need as many supporters as possible to get us over that line. The race will be going on for both days so come on down to Penny Black, order a beer (or five!), and enjoy some good old Gaelic craic!

BUT WAIT – there’s more.

The following weekend we’re jetting off to Sarawak in a final bid for victory (and a chance to let our hair down). I won’t ask for supporters for this one (but if you really want to…) but be sure to pat our guys on the back and wish a little good luck before the flight.



BLACK FRIDAY —
Is scheduled for the 18th November. No more races (apart from those crazy folk who signed up for the Vertical Marathon and Ankor Watt Marathon!) so what better way to celebrate with multiple rounds of jagerbombs at our sponsor bar, Penny Black! Let’s kick off the Christmas celebrations early and feel that festive cheer!


CHRISTMAS PARTY —
Will be on 3rd December this year. Definitely not one to miss. Keep your calendar clear all weekend as I guarantee you won’t be in the best shape to do anything the day after 😉

10K Race!

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

 

Hi Gaelics!

This is it! The most anticipated race of the year is finally upon us. We’ve been smashing our time targets week on week and it’s time for all our hard work to pay off. The 10KM is no easy feat. It’s one of the most challenging races in the calendar (if not THE most challenging) and requires an extraordinary level of physical and mental strength. The most important thing to remember is that we cross that finish line as a team, being proud of what we have achieved. It’s going to be tough, but – boy – it’s going to be worth it! If you’re not racing this weekend please come down and support the team – speak to Jenny about good viewing stations!

Speaking of team spirit, the Gaelic flag has been on some pretty epic adventures this month! Check out the Gaelics on the summit of Mount Kinabalu and Mount Rinjani! Great job, guys!
