I am curious if anyone here competes on a team in the dragon boat festival?

I have competed the last 6 years - it's an absolute blast.

When we lived in Iowa before NY I did a dragon boat competition. Fun, fun and more fun.

A boat race. 40ft long canoe style boat with 20 paddlers a drummer and stern.

Here is a video of a 200 meter sprint.

Iowa is pretty big on dragon boating.

It's a great team sport.

I would like to do it again and it's all about the team... I recommend it to all at least once.
