Breaking The Limits

 

The Divas weekend was fun, but some might have been pulled out from their comfort zones. Most paddled on the side they haven’t trained on, and our men, dressed and danced as a woman. They’re happy to do it for a good cause, and for the team. But one of the best parts, we are doing all of these AS A TEAM! And you know that is much more fun.

So let’s all continue to train hard, break the limits, and  be tougher than we were! For SDBF!

Meanwhile…. here are some snaps of our fun times at Divas…

We Are Not Just A Team,

We’re A Family

Gaelic Dragons is not just any other team… We’ve seen each other grow, becoming better paddlers each race.

We’ve supported each teammate, in and out of the boat. Our bond is getting stronger as we are. We have all shown that from the last weekend’s race. 

These photos just prove it….

Captain’s Message

What an amazing weekend! Well done to everyone who participated and supported for the DBS Marina Regatta 2017!

It’s amazing how much improvement we have achieved from the 2 training weekends between SAVA and DBS. This only shows that when we really put our minds into one common goal and work together as one; we will be able to achieve something beyond our expectations. We all know that SAVA and DBS races would be our test grounds for the changes we have implemented for the past couple of months but the results were unexpected. We have surpassed our limits and pushed ourselves in every race! Now that we know we can really do it, let’s continue aiming for progress and break all the limits.

It is also commendable how much love and support we have for this team! With the Gaelics, everything is much more fun! Even semis could feel like finals because of how much support we give each other. Let’s continue having a positive mentality and grow together!

 

This is just the beginning, we still have a long way to go but we will do it all and face it together as ONE TEAM, as one FAMILY! SDBF here we come! 💪🏽

 

Paddles Up! Kick Arse! Go GAELICS!

SAVA

Sprints

 

13 – 14 May 2017

 

We’ve all been waiting for this! All that hard work in the boat. All those weekends of training under the scorching heat or the heavy rain. You only got a minute for this race. Can you already imagine yourself cheering at the end of the finish line?

Whether or not you will be on the race crew, let’s show the other teams how loud a Gaelic dragon can roar.

Updates for the SAVA Sprints Gaelic Supporters will be out soon…

Have you heard about WAAVE? It’s an app we’re trying that will help us keep track of attendance and allow you to pay for training, races etc. It can also be used in lots of bars and restaurants, and gives you a discount on your orders.
We’d really like to encourage our members to download the app and try it out. It’s not compulsory but we need to get a decent number of members using it to make it worthwhile. Please download the app, join the Gaelic Dragons using the password “ipaddle” and let us know what you think. Subscription members, please let Aoife know once you’ve downloaded it and she’ll send you a code to validate your subscription on the app. Any issues or questions about setting it up, please ask!

Do you love writing?

We are encouraging those Gaelics who loves to write and would like to share their thoughts to the community. You can write about dragon boating, running, workouts, sports apparels, healthy eating or anything you think that would benefit a Gaelic.

Where Were The Gaelics At?!

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!
