Cantab wins 'best dressed crew' at Cambridge Dragon Boat Festival


Once again Cantab was a proud sponsor of the Cambridge Dragon Boat Festival, in aid of East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices.

The team didn’t shy away from getting their hands wet either, and Cantab’s crew were thrilled to row into second place in the mixed teams.

The choice of costume this year was inspired by ‘Noah’s Ark’. The team donned zebra, giraffe and meerkat onesies and were led to the boat in an orderly two-by-two formation by their very own bearded Noah.

The crew were delighted that their efforts were rewarded with the only prize that really counts – winning Best Dressed Team!

Many thanks to everyone who took part in the race, sponsored the crew and supported such a worthwhile cause.
