Capital school dragon-boating

This afternoon Wellington's harbour was thronged with teams and spectators for the secondary schools dragon-boating competition. It was a perfect day, with hardly any wind. The two races I stayed to watch were the Girls C Grade Final and the Mixed B Grade Final; the former was won by St Catherine's (which I'd never heard of, but it's apparently a Catholic girls' college in Kilbirnie) and the latter by Hutt Valley High No.2. Looked like a fun day on the water.
