Hartford Dragon Boat Racing

August 19, 2013

Below are some shots from the Hartford Riverfront Dragon Boat and Asian Festival. They have held this since 2000, but this was the first time I’ve gone.  A dragon boat consists of 22 people – 20 paddlers, 1 drummer – who controls the rowing through rhythmic drum beating, and 1 steersperson.  The racing I saw was short and intense – an all-out burst of energy to get your boat to the finish line first!
