Dragon Boat Team

Tonight I joined up with the Dragon Boat Charleston Community Team. Dragon boats have been around since the 5th century and the sport is becoming increasingly popular. Charleston has an MUSC team of cancer survivors and now it will have a community team composed of interested rowers.

Tonight we learned the basics about stroke and position. Then we actually got to row out in the Ashley River and try out synchronized strokes. It was a lot of fun and a beautiful evening. The dogs probably missed me but it's good to take a break and be on the water. I enjoyed seeing the setting sun on the water.
