there is no question they would seriously kick everyones butt at the Worlds .If we thought teams like the Phillipines ,China ,etc were good ,they have nothing on Tahiti . They turned a 1.49 500 meter in a oc6 at Sacramento Worlds,thats stinkin fast and the hard part is they don't even look like they are working that hard . Can you imagine 20 of them in a dragonboat ,pray they never decide to try it

"If XX country entered the dragon boat race they would kick butt!"

Heard that too many times to take it seriously. Really, different boats, different water, different day, DIFFERENT SPORT! You can't make that generalization.

Can they put TWENTY (20) guys in a boat, overseas, that are better than the 20 guys that Russia, China, the U.S., Canada, etc, can? It's a whole different ballgame when you actually have to do it.

Who the f#ck knows because they never have! Probably never will, so don't worry about it.

Well, it's FREAKING OFFICIAL, the Tahitian people did it. They won a race of dragon boat in nottingham this year, and NOT ONLY THEY WON, THEY BEAT THE EUROPEAN RECORD AS WELL. Take that!!!!

I guess the results are slow, because it doesn't look like they even raced yet.https://dragonboat.pl/ems.idbf/2012_not.php

Looks like some fast water. Mixed crews pulling under 8 minutes for a 2000m.

It's a senior crew but just wait until they show up w/ premier crews. Give them a couple of years and they may very well dominate this sport as they have in outrigger

It's says they turned a 7:30 in the 2000 senior mens open ( and the article says something about women on board ) , russia was a 7:38 and Germany a 7:45. Even in Premier open Germany won with a 7:38 but different condition possible.

Not sure their time counted for anything because they appeared only as a guest team whatever that means

I'm glad they finally decided to try it out and I'm sure we will see more teams now. Can you imagine the premier open final with Tahiti,Phillipines,China ,makes for a very fast final

There is NO way that course is actually 2000 meters, unless it had (1) no turns and (2) a very strong current and/or tail wind!!
