Fast and furious describes the sport of Dragon Boat Racing.

Corporate and social teams, serious competitors and those out for a days fun joined the Brisbane River Dragons for some racing as part of this years Chinese New Year celebrations.

Crews of eighteen paddlers along with a drummer and a sweep filled each boat. Racing four boats at a time the spectators along the river at South Bank had a clear view of the spectacle and witnessed the effort and timing needed to propel these craft smoothly through the water.
