The view from the back of the boat

June 13, 2011 @ 12:46 By: gordon Category: Dragonboats

I’ve been steering dragonboats for ten years, so my view of dragonboat races is probably quite different than that of a paddler (who should be following the paddle in front of them during the race!) or the caller (who doesn’t get to see where we’re going) — I’m really the only one in the boat who gets to see where we’re going! At my team‘s practice on Saturday I wore a tiny POV camera and recorded some of the practice. The owner of the camera has posted the video on YouTube and it’s definitely worth a view.

You can see videos from other practices on our team website.
