Dragon Boat

Dragon Boat, that's my new sport. It's a boat with about 20 people rowing. It requires strenght and stamina, but also technique and timing. If the 20 people row to the same pace, the boat goes faster. That's why some boats bring a drum on board, so that a leader can dictate the rowing rhythm. I'll be rowing in the next Tuesday and Thursday evenings, while both the summer and my patience last. The guys are talking about competing when we get properly trained. That might be interesting...
