New Dragon Boat Paddles

The TRRA Equipment Committee approved the purchase of new paddles earlier this summer. Those paddles have been appropriately tagged by Dick, our Equipment Coordinator Extraordinaire: each is marked with 'TRRA' and a paddle number, plus some indicative tape at the top of the shaft. The new ones also have their length (in inches) marked on the stub end of the T grip.

Here's the coding system for the tape (direct from Dick):

The paddle lengths begin at 44" and increase in 1" increments up to 51".

The colors corresponding to these increments are as follows:

Red, 44"
Blue, 45"
Black, 46"
Yellow, 47"
White, 48"
Green, 49"
Brown, 50"
Brown/Yellow, 51"
