The Boston Dragon Boat Festival took place on June 11-12, 2011 on the Charles River. While time trials took place on Saturday at the MIT boathouse, this footage follows the Harvard Dragon Boat Team on Sunday during the actual festival and races. Harvard entered two boats: "Athena" the women's boat and "Veritas", the mixed boat. Despite cloudy weather, spirits were high and the team put all their effort into every race.
In the end, the Athena placed 2nd in the Division C Minor finals and 2nd in the Women's Challenge, while Veritas placed 1st in the Division A Tail finals.
Thanks to Lily, Bana, Rostic, Ellie, Melissa and Fiona for contributing footage for this video.
