There be dragons!

No, not acerbic entrepreneurs from the Dragons Den, this is Dragon Boat Racing!

Our intrepid MD spent Saturday on the waters of Bewl Water in West Kent taking part in the 2008 Dragon Boat Festival. Racing for the Nutley Stags to raise money for Nutley Primary School, Neil and his team managed a credible second place from a starting field of 50 boats.

The team raised over £3,000 for the school and it is believed that the event generated more than £160,000 for local good causes.

This is the second year in succession that the Stags have got the silver medal. Bookmakers are already refusing to take bets on the team taking gold next time.
