Thank you girls for representing all of us. Sorry I couldn’t join you.

Lighthouse Dragons team mates Toby, Debbie, Pat and Shelly attended the Dragonheart Vermont Sisters At Heart Celebration. A two day festival celebrating sisterhood and survivorship through dragon boating. Our composite team boat, The East Coast Connection, had paddlers from Florida, Vermont, New York, Kentucky and New Brunswick, CA. We connected with old friends and made a lot of new friends.
We received some fabulous coaching from 22Dragons of Canada, then enjoyed two days of racing, singing, dancing, bagpipes, Zumba, Taiko drumming and so much more!
A special tribute was made during the flower ceremony, when all ten survivor boats were connected on the water, in remembrance of our team mate Catalina Palacio. It was truly a heartwarming weekend.

Hey there. I was one of the people singing for the Flower Ceremony with Bonnie Aharonian. Sorry we didn't "connect" with you, as my dad Jack Blanchard was up from Jupiter - he lives right near the lighthouse. 💜

Great quartet to represent Lighthouse Dragons !!💜

Beautiful picture!! ❤️❤️❤️

Glad you had a fun time!

Fun to have Glenda all the way from her Singapore dragon boat team join us in tonight’s paddle. Great workout and lots of laughter on the boat.

It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of our beloved dragon boat sister, Catalina Palacio. When Catalina joined Lighthouse Dragons in late 2016, she was full of energy and love for dragon boating and especially our breast cancer mission. So much so, that she saw a vision to bring dragon boating to the breast cancer survivors in her home country, and a year later, Dragonboat Colombia was formed in Cartagena. She was a visionary, always positive and energetic, in love with life and the people she met. Her energy and smile was contagious, always bringing out the best in each of us.
We will certainly miss you, Captain Catalina.

His challenge to us is to form and train our own relay team to join him in next year’s crossing. Challenge accepted!

How cool!! So sorry I wasn’t able to join! I heard about the crossing, but didn’t know it had already taken place - way to go, Scott!!! Sound like fun, though I’d probably also prefer kayaking.

Congratulations Scott! Great speech!! Such a beautiful dinner celebration for your amazing accomplishment!

Congratulations Scott! What a wonderful accomplishment. I’m in for that relay 100%!

Thanks and Congratulations Scott! Your speech was very inspirational! I’m in for the relay but I would prefer to kayak rather than paddle board.

Awesome! I would’ve joined you but had a previous engagement.

Congrats 🎈 Scott that was amazing 😉

Congrats Scott!

Sorry I missed this, congratulations Scott and I'm in for the challenge 😁

Great job Scott

Amazing accomplishment!!!!!!

This one’s for all my dragon boat buddies out there!

For those who don’t yet know- Dragon boating is an ancient Chinese tradition which is actually soooo amazing for Breast Cancer survivors to participate in!

It’s a low impact form of exercise, with a repetitive action thats wonderful for draining the lymphatic system, reducing lymphedema and improving upper body muscle strength and increasing range of movement after surgery.

Pink paddling teams are now all over the world- a huge global success story for cancer survivors, and a sisterhood that is inspiring and phenomenal.

This cartoon pertains to the Sweep- (Steers person) of the boat. I’m learning to sweep my teams boat- it’s a huge responsibility and definitely not a piece of cake!

Much respect to those who step up to the back of the boat 🙌

Tips For Paddling On a Dragon Boat Race Team

If you've never paddled on a dragon boat team before, you'll be amazed at how much fun it is, and how smooth and fast the races seem. Afterwards, you'll feel how much effort it took, but while you're racing it's all about being synchronized and keeping your form.
Dragon boat racing may be an ancient sport with origins in China, but it's now become a fast-growing international sport. There are numerous annual dragon boat races across Canada and the United States, and you can find competitions in the UK, Europe, and of course, all over Asia.

There are two types of boats...
The "Flag Catcher" style, also known as the Taiwanese Ceremonial Boat. At the finishing line, a flag catcher who crouches at the bow and then climbs on the dragons head to snatch the flag that is upright in the water, to signal the reach of finish line.
More commonly used is the Hong Kong style boats. They are lower, lighter and faster, and are used by most competitive teams.
Both take 18-20 paddlers and feature a drummer and a steersperson.


DRAGON BOAT PADDLING TIPS
First of all, remember, it's "PADDLING," not "rowing." Keep in mind that there are many different approaches to paddling, but they all have the same thing in common: to have an "efficient" stroke. These are just some guidelines and you will always do as your own coach instructs when you are on their boat.
Before you can paddle, you need to have a good base of support. When you sit in the boat, you must "hang a cheek" (your outside hip) as close to the side of the boat as possible.
So....Paddles Up. Have fun and be safe! See you on the water!

BASICS:
- Keep the paddle vertical when the blade is in the water (top hand over bottom hand)
- Keep a quiet boat, meaning, do not move side to side when paddling
- Keep the paddle as close to the gunwale (side of the boat) at all times, during the stroke and also during the recovery.
- Try to recover with the blade as close to the water as possible,
- Stay open and big when paddling, head-up, chin-up,chest-up helps keep the airways open as well.
- Bottom hand should grip around 4" up from top of the blade; if you hold too near the blade, it will limit how far you can reach.

ROTATION AND EXTENSION AND FORWARD LEAN:
- Rotation starts from the (1) hips, (2) lower back, (3) upper back, (4) shoulders, (5) extend arms
- To maximize reach and extension, concentrate on bringing your outside arm parallel to the water before the catch and extend the bottom arm straight.
- Most of your weight should be on your outside butt-cheek with the other side slightly lifted off the bench when reaching
- I like to keep my outside leg forward. You can keep both forward or the inside leg (depends on what your coach says)
- I am able to use my leg to push off for extra power
- Lean forwards at all times, it really helps to get more length on the stroke - also if the person sitting in front of you is not leaning, it will shorten the stroke of the person behind.
- Try to reach and extend further than you normally would.... When you practice this more, the easier it will get 🙂
CATCH:
- Plant your paddle into the water before you start to pull.
- The catch should be silent without any splashing (otherwise that means you are starting to pull before a full catch)
- Keep the stroke up-front, and do not pull back too far past your hip or you will put drag on the boat.

PULL:
- Keep your core tight as most of the work during the pull is coming from your back and legs (not from the arms).
- Lock your bottom arm while pulling.
- Push with your leg for extra power.
- Think of the pull as if you are pulling yourself and the boat up to the paddle, rather than pushing the paddle into the water.

EXIT AND RECOVERY:
- Exit when the blade reaches your mid thigh as pulling back too far will create drag.
- Try to pull up instead of out to the side....try not to drop your top arm too low in front of your face.
- As you exit the water, you can do a slight inwards twist with your wrists to help with the clean exit.

We'll see you at the races!

Good information from our team's sponsor Jupiter Medical Center. Pay attention to the early signs. Knowledge is power.Do you know the symptoms of a TIA or “mini-stroke”? A TIA usually lasts only a few minutes and no longer than 24 hours. While TIAs generally do not cause permanent brain damage, they are a serious warning sign of stroke and should not be ignored. TIA is a proven risk factor for stroke. The risk of stroke is highest within the first 30 days after a TIA.

Symptoms include:
- Brief period of weakness or numbness of the face, arm, or leg, especially on one side of the body
- Brief period of confusion, or trouble speaking or understanding
- Difficulty seeing in one or both eyes for a brief period of time
- Difficulty walking, dizziness, or loss of balance or coordination for a brief period of time
- Brief period of severe headache with no known cause

OMG, 1st, 2nd and 3rd - it’s a hat trick!! Congratulations to you fabulous women!!

You ladies look awesome! I had family in town and they arrived yesterday evening and had to wake up early for a long drive back up to White Plains NY.

Great morning! Lovely sunrise, well planned race, good friends and a great cause supporting Sari Asher Center for Integrative Cancer Care!

Great job!

Way to go SOS👏🏼💕
