IDBF World Dragon Boat Races
It was an absolutely fantastic day for the opening ceremonies for the IDBF World Dragon Boating Championships. Top athletes in dragon boat paddling from over 17 countries deended on Tampa for a full week of competition. Day one was blessed with excellent weather and the humidity was at bay that day, which is quite odd for the time year.
Kim, Phil and Patsy from team USA. The TECO (Tan Anu) team fielded four paddlers on the USA team and is a testament to how competitive a corporate team can be.
