Dragon Boat Racing

Date

Sunday, 08 June, 2008

Content So today was the first time that I've been to a Dragon Boat racing event, which sounds like a regular fixture in the UK's Chinese cultural calendar. It was a pretty hot day, more so because I was manning a stall and handing out leaflets for the BC Project which I'm a part of.

I had a feeling that the "essence" of the event may have been felt more if I was actually boating, judging by the collapsed, post-race (first time?) rowers nursing their aching arms and shoulders. But water isn't my thing. Maybe next time. I have to admit, there's something catchy about the Hawaii-Five-O theme tune blasting out the start of a race.

Anyway, here are a few photos below, with more via this link:
