They're down to 2 festivals, 0 sport races.

Let's hope their days are numbered and we can get both numbers down to zero.

"Use of one of the most modern and up-to-date fleets of dragon boats, portable docks, paddles, and lifejackets."

Would that be the latest in 'teak' technology for the boats?

well, i had to read it to believe it.

http://www.facilitymarketing.com/Dragon ... onBoat.htm

"The traditional boats used in most modern day events are 12 meters in length, constructed of solid teak and weigh approximately 1500 lbs. They are propelled by 20 paddlers, guided by a Cox or Steersperson and kept in rhythm by a drummer seated at the bow of the boat, maintaining a steady, and powerful pace for the duration of the traditional 500 meter course.

A sheer strength advantage in each individual paddler rarely results in victory. Teamwork combined with a good strength to weight ratio is the key. Well coordinated female and mixed crews routinely defeat all-male crews."

joel as the person who posted this link out of sheer randomness i now know that i have fulfilled my purpose in this world.

key takeaways:
- teak boats are the boats of choice
- mixed crews can beat mens crews with sync
- and then fmg woke up

i think you could learn something from fmg. they have great insights into the world of dragonboating.

I see where they were going with this, but... come on!

Technically they're right, if you look at Mayfair, False Creek, Beasts, compared to your typical men's crew...

After these three examples though, not so much.

What were the times at the Island? Looks like Mayfair would have lost (solely looking at race times and with absolutely no other logical information) to the open division teams.

The Dragon Beasts won the men's division at Nationals last year racing head to head with their mixed crew against good teams like RTF and CSDBC.
