A happy crowd in Aussie dress up at the Australia Day Olive Trophy Challenge
The 2021 Australia Day Challenge was organised by the Dragons.
The first water event was the dragon boat race, followed by the kayak relay, then paddling, or in some cases, walking, inflatable lilos. Last was the sailing race, which was delayed due to lack of wind, and by the time the wind came in, was held in a raging out-going tide.
Land events included boules, thong throwing and the egg-and-spoon race. After lunch there was tough competition in the ‘Covid 19 Crossing Borders’ quiz. Get an Australian trivia question correct and you were one step closer to getting home. An incorrect answer put you in quarantine.
The Dragons and Sailability teams put up a good fight, but just not good enough on the day. The glorious day ended with some poetry and singing with the trophy being won by the Yacht Club, again.
