    BTW, is it at the Macritchie Reservoir Park? Make sure I won't go to the wrong place coz Macritchie Reservoir is very huge.

    How far away will the action be? When I was there for a dragonboat event you could only get shots near the finish line.

    Never really recce the place they canoe before at Macritchie, can a 200mm lens be able to shoot the action?

    Don't want to be like what reflecx mentioned there, if action far away from mainland, lens zoom not enough.

    He was talking about the Pesta Sukan Canoe Polo this weekend at the SPE pools at Bukit Timah.
    Think of concepts and work towards it.

    Actually the Shortest distance for this competition was 200m. But since the event is already over, i guess it doesn't matter anymore. Based on my observations, they alternate novelty events every year, so next year the 200m sprint will probably be replaced with mixed events. i.e. mixed doubles.
