Dragonboating. It's not just a sport of paddling. It is a celebration of team spirit, concentrated unity, essence of synergy.
It is an unparalleled sporting activity which makes people really feel being part of something, something quite unique.
What other sport makes 20 over athletes to be like one, in their desire to win, in their commitment, in their determination to outperform ?
It is not just about the strength or faster paddling rhythm, it is at first about finding the way of synchronizing

Yesterday 9th July we were hard training for the upcoming races in Purkarec. The boat was full and it happened that the the non-racing members stayed out of the boat. Normaly we will sail another boat to take all the people but this time it was necesary to train the crew for the race.
But there was enough space for our dear visit - Karin and Mitzi - two girl paddlers from Jaxs Fire Dragons, from Jacksonville, Florida.
Training was hard. Several 200 meters races, 500 meters and also one race for 1 km with there turn that make your head a little turned :-)
