Team Survivor Sea Dragons take on the A16 SoCal Trifecta!Posted by Adventure 16 | 03.23.2016
Team Survivor Sea Dragons compete all over the U.S. in dragon boat competitions. The team members, who also love to hike, were looking for a new and different competition in which to partake, when they came upon A16's SoCal Trifecta, a fun challenge in which participants do a human-powered activity in the ocean, snow and desert, all within 24 hours.
4:00pm: The team started Saturday evening with Dragon boat practice at Fiesta Island, San Diego
Sunday morning, they drove out to Palm Springs, where they went up the tram to San Jacinto State Park to play in the snow.
3:00pm: The day ended Sunday afternoon with some hiking in the desert at Agua Caliente Indian Reservation--all in less than 24 hours!
"This was an exciting and exhilarating adventure, said team member Nichole Melone. Thank you for the challenge!"
TEAM SURVIVOR SEA DRAGONS
The Sea Dragons are a group of cancer survivors of various ages, backgrounds, and athletic abilities who share the same goal: to enhance their own physical fitness through the sport of dragon boat racing.
As the team's website explains, "For those unfamiliar with the sport of dragon boating, simply put, it is a boat of 20 paddlers, a drummer and a steers person paddling to cross the finish line faster than their competition. It is a team sport in its purest form that encompasses the elements of power, speed, synchronization and endurance."
