Dragon Boat Races
We offer non-traditional collective experience – synchronous paddling in dragon boats, originally an old Chinese tradition over 2000 years.
Upon arrival, each participant receives a colour T-shirt, which it divides into the team. Briefing instruction follows, introduction by our instructors and presentation of the dragon boats. Dragon boats are 12.5 meters long and can accommodate twenty participants, 10 left and 10 right.
At the end twenty-two crew is then added helmsman standing at the stern, in our case, an experienced instructor and a drummer sitting on high stools in front, a leather drum beats to the rhythm of paddling. Fore and aft boat decorated with carved dragon head and tail.
In the first part is time for paddling synchronization, than for the race: 250m of hard paddling, the fastest team wins medals!
