Dragon boat

A new influence from the East

From its roots in the Far East, Dragon Boat Racing is fast becoming a global discipline for both competition and social interaction. These long, open canoes are paddled by 20 paddlers, or a smaller version with ten paddlers, using single-bladed paddles. Often the craft will be elaborately decorated, and include a drummer and a coxwain / helmsman.
