    Default Dragonboat composition

    I heard my friend mentioning that there will be one this coming weekends... Anyone know when is it going to be held, time and place?

    Thanks

    Quite different I'd expect. Because you are kneeling down when you paddle.

    Plus, need a lot a lot of other stuff like balance. Dragon boat is like T1/2 (if you know kayak classs), C1/C2 would be more like K1/2 already, much easier to capsize. The other time I went to MacRitchie I saw these people rowing C1/2 looks like very jialat to balance. =D

    yeah agree.

    these C paddlers have to steer (to go staight), balance and still maintain speed, kudos to them, it takes years to master and most start out when they are kids..

    imagine prostating yourself for 30 minutes, then realise that these guys are on their knee for hours during training. respect to a very small elite group of paddlers.

    Actually in the Dragonboat Festival June Race 2002 (if i remember correctly), The NTU men's team first started using the C method of paddling to race in the Prime Minister Challenge Trophy. They kneeled on the dragonboat seats to row. Very powerful but unstable. After that there were alot of protests, so the organisers disallowed this method of rowing.
