Viking Race Day

Today we attended the EAG Christmas party where all the companies took part in a Viking Race :) It was a fun day, great weather, great band and awesome entertainment!!

The Parade

Racing to fetch the maiden

Weary Vikings

My very own Fierce Viking

Unfortunately John Holland came last apparently due to unfair wind drag on their sails lol, I say it was over engineering of the boat that caused the problem :) too big and too heavy!! Next time they might let a woman design the boat!!
