    Day 1 of the Roma 2016 - 12th EDBF European Dragon Boat Nations Championships done! Some great racing over the day from our 17 nations. Tomorrow will see both 200m and 500m in the Mixed Classes, so that will mean a rest day for some teams.

    The 2000m are now going to be 1500m in length due to safety concerns on the turns as the course is so narrow. Racing starts tomorrow sharply at 09.00hrs. All crews to be in Boat Marshalling 30minutes before their race start time.
