The closest I could get to water sports with the Dragon Boat races taking place last September on the Red River.

Each race consisted of a quarter mile row with three dragon boats and if nothing else there was a lot of energy on the part of the participants. I would imagine a lot of sore muscles the next morning but all for a good cause.

Last year there was high water in this area of the Red River and so it was difficult to find a place along the river that was free of water.

I very nearly used a dragon boat Jan but it isn't the same just seeing one. A lot of effort being put in by those competitors,

Perfect for the theme Jan - but rather unusual colours? I note the cox (?) actually standing in the Dragon Boat to urge his team on!
