Splashing dragon, hidden tiger


One of the teams competing in the Dragon-boat racing at Leeds Waterfront Festival. There was plenty of splashing and yelling going on, as well as the steady drum-beat (that is supposed) to tell them when to dip their paddles. I thought the guy at the back looked pretty cool, considering!

  1. Chap at the back looks a bit like the on-duty Health and Safety Officer.

  2. ...or the nurse in charge of a day out from the asylum.

  3. The boat looks a bit overloaded, to me!

  5. These dragon boat races are so much fun. There will be some races on the Connecticut River sometime later in the summer. I went last year and posted a few photos.
