Practical training on the Dragon Boat, which is a large canoe-like vessels with crews of up to 20 people sit in pairs and paddle. Each boat has a drummer beating time to keep the paddlers in unison, and a professional steerer in the stern to guide the boat.

We paddle for around 2 hours in the open sea with rest in between (yes, breaks for selfie included). Depending on the crew number, we sometimes paddle to the nearest beach.
