A 6/16 dragonboat is 13 metre long and weighs 1 ton. It takes many of us to lift them out from the water.
Now we practice in Gemini and BUK boats which are lighter and not so comfortable.

A race must be organized well ahead of time.

paddles are ready

water station
life jackets must be sorted paddles provided drinking water supplied
ambulance first aid portable toilets
first aid stations on alert and lots of portables needed at a race

To compete in a race needs diligent practice, preparation, organization,
cooperation, enjoyment....etc.
