    I am a silver medalist

    I raced with Spirit of Vancouver at the Banff Dragon Boat Festival and we won silver medal at the C division. The winning time was 2:03. We lost the Gold Medal by 0.1 Second. I celebrated with a RP Edge because that was my first medal.

    That was my first time in Banff, Alberta and I plan to go back.

    They have a dragon boat race in Portland OR every year during the Rose Festival. I'm not sure if it's the same thing as pomorider is talking about, but they are literally dragon shaped boats that are paddled by a team in a race.

    Actually Dragon Boat is a Chinese thing, and it became popular in Canada and the States in the late 90's. It is still a fringe sport, but it is getting more popular every year. During the last 2 Olympic Games(Bejing and Vancouver), Dragon Boats were used to carry the Olympic Flame as well.

    Dragon boats are commonly made out of fiberglass or wood and it normally sits 20 paddlers with a drummer and a steer person. The drummer is the heart of the dragon boat as the person dictates the pace to the first row of the paddlers to set the pace and the rest of the paddles will watch and follow the pace.

    The races are relatively short. They range from 200 metres to 1,000 metres and the majority of the races are 500 metres.

    I hope that answered your question.

    I smoke in Waikiki and there are a few of these; I like to sit next to them and blow my smoke into their mouths so they look like they're smoking too. Pictures to follow soon!

    A lack of preparation on your part, does not constitute an emergency on my part.
