3rd South Africa, Official License Holder of Corporate Games South Africa, invited companies from all over the Western Cape to participate in a Dragon Boat Challenge. The challenge saw companies battle it out on the sea, at the V&A Waterfront, Official Host Venue for the Cape Town Corporate Games 2013.
The Dragon Boat Challenge was initiated to give companies an opportunity to network and to experience first hand what the Cape Town Corporate Games is all about.
The sport discipline, dragon boat racing is certainly one of the most exciting of the 15 sporting codes scheduled for the Cape Town Corporate Games multi-sports festival later this year, which is expected to attract thousands of competitors from across South Africa.
On arrival, guests were divided into three teams to paddle against each other. Top local companies that participated in the Dragon Boat challenge included the likes of Barloworld Motors, Sanlam, Intergest, RedBull, 24.com, Cape Media, NCC Environmental Services, Allan Gray, Evolv Networks, Tag Rugby, Tsogo Sun Hotels, Protea Hotel Breakwater Lodge, and City of Cape Town Fire & Rescue Services just to name a few.
Volker Werth, Director at InterGest South Africa commented:
"This event was a real surprise.....a fun and action filled race, in an awesome setting, which makes for the perfect corporate challenge. I will definitely be entering my company again, and challenging my colleagues and associates to test their abilities during this great event."
Event partners of the Cape Town Corporate Games 2013, who came on board for the Dragon Boat Challenge, included SAB Miller and Red-bull who supplied participants with the necessary refreshments for the race.
The Dragon Boat Challenge was the perfect opportunity to engage in friendly rivalry in a race against each other and to reconnect through sport for fun and friendly competition, networking opportunities and social activities.
3rd South Africa will be arranging regular practice sessions to assist companies to train leading up to the Cape Town Corporate Games taking place from 06-09 June 2013.
During the practice sessions companies will be taught the techniques, commands and paddlers tips, ensuring that they are well prepared and synchronised for the race in the Cape Town Corporate Games. A perfectly synchronised team will almost always beat a stronger, but less coordinated team.
