Phoenix is a women’s team which loves to be out on the river for the exercise, the environs, the companionship and the coffee afterwards.
Seems so long ago now – 2014. But yes, Team Phoenix has been around since then, first started as a women’s 55+ team to compete at the BC Senior Games. But from the very beginning, the primary goal has been not to win “bling” (although that’s always a happy surprise!), but to get a bit of exercise in the great outdoors, and to have a fun time with our friends. Don’t for a minute imagine that we don’t work hard at our practices, getting out there come rain or shine to work up an appetite. Because of course we like to head to the pub afterwards to hang out with our team mates.
Over the years, we’ve been to many regattas – False Creek, Harrison Hot Springs, Nanaimo, Kamloops, Steveston, and Kent just to name a few. Here we are, lookin’ fine in our purple shirts. We’re all about the purple!
