Too busy with boat work to attend the 2014 Dragon Boat Race in Oriental this August, Diann and I had no sense of what the boats were. The staff at Bank’s Sails had told us of the event, but we simple had to do boat chores on our Gemini catamaran.

While walking at the Farmer’s Market this past Saturday we caught a glimpse of one of the boats on display at Oriental Inn & Marina. The boat was longer than I had expected and built professionally. It certainly wasn’t like a boat at the PYC cardboard boat races in which I’ve participated.

The official link to the event reveals it to be a major local event.
