It’s no exaggeration to say that this year’s Donegal Regatta was extremely challenging, both for the organisers and for the Plurabelles. But dragons aren’t easily defeated! Despite the Regatta being postponed by a day due to high winds, it went ahead the next day and was a terrific success.
The Plurabelles who could stay the extra day and compete in the event joined paddlers from Canada and Donegal in the Khalessi composite team – the silver-medal-winning composite team! Yes, Khalessi came second in the Minor final (between Donegal Dragons Inspire and West Island Dragons from Canada). In the Major final, Belfast Phoenix came first, Dublin Vikings second and Donegal Dolphins third.
As these photos so clearly show, we had a great time. The fancy dress theme was Superheroes – and there were plenty on display over the weekend . . . superheroes don’t always wear capes, some of the time they wear training tops!
