ABREAST IN A BOAT 

Saturday Sept 2, 2 pm -4 pm

Olympic Village

A highlight  and brand new experience for many women at BOLDFest is an introduction to Dragonboating -- an "extra activity"* which has been offered to BOLDFestees for  the past several years, thanks to the continued support and love of the sport from two of our women's DragonBoat Teams.

This year we will be working with ABreast in A Boat Team, one of many worldwide teams all of whose members are breast cancer survivors. Their ceremony on the water at regattas -- to remember all the women who have passed on from breast cancer -- is a memorable moment, recognized by the hundreds of people who converge to paddle or cheer their teams on.  The picture shown is the very first Abreast in a Boat Team in the world.

Coach Margaret Hobart brings many years of combined paddling experience to the team.  

*cost is $20 per person, 75% of which goes to Breast in A Boat. All women welcome to register. Go to Individual Events Page to register.
