WORCESTER Dragon Boat Racing Club secured two third-place awards in the British League meeting at Nottingham.

The visitors finished third in the 200-metre mixed cup and in the 2,100m distance event.

This season Dragons have welcomed quite a few new paddlers allowing lots of rotation.

The women’s crew also earned valuable points against more experienced crews.

Dragons previously headed to the Hong Kong Festival in London with 55 crews racing.

Worcester were fifth in the 200m race and sixth in the 1,000m contest.
