Dragon Boat Racing!

On a sunny Saturday on Preston Dock, F2 Chemicals Ltd. put together a dragon boat team, raising money for CRY, in memory of former employee, Steve Wiggins.

A total of twelve teams each took part, with three heats for each team, the four best times going through to the final. Our first race (see image) was okay, but by our third heat, we were getting it together, and just made the top four. For the final, we gave it all we had, in a very tight race - just 1.5 seconds between first and third. With most of us complete novices, we were both pleased and amazed to come second (beaten by a far more experienced UCLan team).

And we raised over £700 for charity too!

Community Education Awards

F2 Chemicals were recently asked to help Penwortham Priory Academy, Preston, with a project to 'overclock' a high spec computer, in other words making the PC run faster than designed with no negative effects. This was a project designed and run by two students who have an interest in the subject, the experiment involved submersing a computer's electrical components in a non-conductive cooling liquid. This allowed for the computer to process an increased number of commands without over-heating. The team ran hour long stress tests where the computer was pushed beyond its limit. The computer's temperature was monitored throughout the stress tests. The students won an award for the academy and much praise from their peers.
