The following is a YouTube video of the 2011 Ottawa Dragon Boat Festival –

I just had to include the following inspirational video I found on YouTube, “Must Watch Dragon Boat Clip!!!”, taken from various dragon boat events in Singapore.

This video was created to show that the sport, dragon boating, is not just about training hard to win, but to enjoy and embrace all the elements that it encompasses.

Three fun filled days for everyone –

Have a great time –

Best of luck to all participants

“WINNING PADDLES TAKE ALL!!!”

                         splashing with silver,
                         follow the wild goose flight
                         dip, dip and swing…”
