Introducing Dragon Boating

Myth: Dragon Boating is a team sport.

Fact: It is an individual sport, the participants just happen to be forced to row together.

Design a dragon boat that will break apart and let the rowers split up, and most of them will. Some will move ahead, some will slack behind, some poor guys will get stuck in the middle.

In basketball, you have to depend on your team mates to assist you to attack by passing or blocking out opponents. In volleyball you have to depend on your teammates to cover areas that are out of your range.

In a dragon boat, all you can do is.... shout.

Contribution to the team in pulling harder is better off motivated by other factors than actually doing it for the team anyway.

Such is the tragedy of dragon boating.

Woe is us.
