Dragon Boat Racing

Dragon boat racing is an aquatic sport in which a 12 metre long canoe-like boat, wide enough to seat 20 people – two abreast – along with a sweep to steer the boat and a drummer, is paddled over a course of approximately 500 metres in length.

During races a dragon boat will feature the head and tail of a dragon, a mythological creature regarded by the Chinese as having domination over the waters and exercising control over rainfall.
