We have to think about every race as being critical.

We are talking about one individual putting the lives of everyone in their hands.  What happens if they lose control and T-Bone..(and it has happened before).  Think of the injuries that are caused...simply because the teams DO NOT practice with this steersperson enough.  Are the coaches NOT thinking when they put these individuals in these boats without enough experience?....are they making sure the boat is balanced so as not to affect the power and cause the boat to pull to one side?

Think about it people......put yourself in the position of possibly being hit by an out of control dragonboat weighing possibly more than 2 tons and injuring you to the point where you can't paddle anymore.  

Steersperson are individuals that have to live with that memory for the rest of their lives.  Coaches have to teach their steerspersons just as they have to coach the paddlers.....and you know what.....I can tell you right now....there are a lot of "so called" coaches out there that have never even steered a boat themselves.  So....think about that.

My opinion on all of this.

Wasn't that a great run regatta?....they were on time,  officials were on top of everything,  race director was very approachable,  the volunteers on the docks moved everyone smoothly and effectively.  The crew marshall also did a good job.
Kudo's to all those that volunteered!!!!!

Concerning Specialities little mishap .........I now truely believe that it wasn't the brown lab (also known as a seal ) that caused the boat to go off course but in reality it was the torque on the blade from their new found powerhouse paddler ,seat 4 on the left , that caused the boat to shoot off course as he "killed the water" on the push ........DOH!!!........

Nah..I think the Brown lab dressed as a seal which was really a black dog wearing a brown lab costume in a seal outfit was the real cause. Though I do wish the paddler I gave the dog biscuit too before the race didn't eat it......I had no reward for its completed mission

among Eskimos, seal eyeballs are apparently a real treat, like candy.
