The final race of the 2021 season was at The National Water sports Centre in Nottingham where over 18 crews battled it out over distances of 2000m, 500m and 200m in mixed, open, men’s and women’s racing. Amathus was represented in the mixed, women’s and men’s categories.
In Chinese culture and legend, the pearl represents being a true dragon. True dragons usually have a pearl in their mouth or claw symbolising being a ‘true’ dragon.
The pearl symbolises being a ‘true dragon’ and helps us to be true dragons and strong on the water together.
The day began with all crews on the water together taking part in an eye dotting ceremony to ‘awaken’ the dragons ready to race.
