Couch Potato Dragons

01 March 2007 - 
Couch potatoes (and athletes, of course) will be interested in the launch of DBTV, the all dragon boat web channel at www.thedragonboatchannel.com. Featuring videos, news, merchandise, information and links, the channel was launched in January by Bob Singerman and Brent Gardner, of Tampa, Florida (USA).

The site is a little poor on video at the moment, but is sure to fill up as the season progresses and more content is submitted. While US-based, the founders hope that the site will attract dragon boat enthusiasts from around the world. So, submit your videos and news then watch this space!

On a related front, YouTube.com dragon boat content has grown rapidly in the last couple of months. A recent search on "dragon boat"delivered nearly 1000 videos related to the sport. The biggest disadvantage to YouTube use is that the content is poorly organized. Most of that can be blamed on poor tags submitted with the videos. This makes it difficult to find dragon boat content that is relevant to ones search criteria. Nonetheless, it is a good chance to find out whats going on in the world of dragon boat racing, see both modern sport racing and traditional racing and check out each others strokes.

Last, but certainly not least, the GB Womens Team have been keeping a video diary of their preparations for the 2007 WC in Sydney. Check it out at www.bbc.co.uk/london/videonation/ then click on the title "Breathing Fire into London". You go girls!

    European Dragon Boat Federation shared Kayak Sans Frontières's event.
    After three already successful international festivals Club Nautique de M'Bao in Senegal and Kayak Sans Frontières, France are once again collaborating on M'Bao 2018! The festival which is held in the seaside town of M'Bao, Senegal (Africa) uses the sport of dragon boating to unite the European and African cultures. The festival focuses on the importance of cultural enrichment and the environment; getting across the message that we must all respect and nurture our environment as it is a valuable resource. More information can be found here: https://drive.google.com/open… If you are up for a bit of cultural change and would like to do your bit for the environment then I cannot recommend this trip more.

    Remember if you have any stories or photos of events in Europe which there are many happening in September, then please send them into the EDBF secretary so we can let everyone know how big our sport is in Europe. Email: secretary@edbf.org or we can share your page if you let us know.
