Beyond This Point There Be Dragons

The Portland Rose Festival Dragon Boat Races couldn’t have been better this year.

IBC was on station performing rescue and transportation duties to the racers and the committee boats.

Only one rescue was performed and that was for some debris that drifted onto the course so altogether almost perfect.

We’ll be posting pics as soon as we get the good ones from our friends Susie and Larry of The China Media group. Mike piloted the Bombard C4R Commando into the tricky spots between the rocks and on the course putting the photographers right in the middle of the action. It’s always a treat to see the photos or fruits of the work because it’s hard to pilot and shoot in a dynamic situation while monitoring two radios. Simply put you need an extra set of hands, and IBC had two great sets of them with Susie and Larry from The China Media LLC group. Thanks you two!

Here’s a couple Mike grabbed in between the action.
