Boobops, one of many teams made up of breast cancer survivors and their supporters, is shown here competing in the Wellington Dragon Boat Festival. The team, set up in 2003, has won a number of events, including the 350-metre grand final at the Wellington festival, and qualified to attend the world championships in 2014.
