What is it like to race Dragon Boats?

It can be one of the most exciting things you will ever do.  The races are fast, furious and competitive. First and third places can be separated by as little as 0.1 of a second. Add to this the pounding of the drums, the screaming crowd, the spray from the paddles, the close proximity of the other boats and you have an intoxicating cacophony of excitement and adrenalin that will leave you wondering why you ever took up any other sport? It’s also the second largest team sport in the world so you get to share this whole experience with 21 of your team mates.
