Also, take a look at your competition!

There's a brief article/video from a local NY news station about teams preparing for the festival. Includes a short interview with Siv Somchanhmavong of the Ithaca Asian American Association:

One more news article, where Siv describes dragon boat racing as "NASCAR on water"...

cool - did you notice that the P'fish *just* made it into that first picture.

It was from the very first 250m race of the day, where we came in second, but still managed to post the third fastest 250 time - ahhh... such speedy pfish, we are :)

Here's a YouTube video of one of the races this weekend. I don't think the Pfish are in this one, but is that Steel City over there in lane 1? Can someone with better eyes (or a clearer monitor!) tell?

cool video, although it's definitely not a Paddlefish race - none of ours had four boats in them.

Am pretty certain that's SCD in lane 4 (furthest from the camera), and you can make out Larry W steering for them.

Hopefully we'll get some results posted soon so we can see which teams this is, and also to see some of the amazing times the P'fish posted :)

Cool video of the Ithaca races...the venue is a lot nicer than the one we used that same weekend for our local "sprint" races...
