The Covid-19 pandemic has forced changes in Dragon Boating 

activities as it has with many other normalcies in life. The inability to practice on the water and our lack of competitive racing, has not left us idle or without activity.  During late spring and during the summer, to remain in good physical condition, Sparta70 held exercise classes twice weekly under the direction of our sport coaches Barb and Lorraine.  We also remained in contact with one another via Zoom.  During the months in which originally scheduled racing competitions were cancelled, we continued to exercise and practice "paddling" on dry land.
