VERMONT — Mary Ann Castimore of Waltham remembers the finish line in Hong Kong. In a stunning upset, the United States Dragon Boat team she was a part of flew over the finish line ahead of the Australians — the world champions and favorites for the race — in the next lane.

“Our boats drifted after we crossed the finish line and everybody stopped,” she said. “The whole Australian boat — all 22 heads just whipped and they stared at us like, ‘Who are they? What’s a Vermont?’”
