Pushing a Dragon through the Wind


Tonight I will be on Lake Bemidji pushing a dragon through the wind.

Every summer our town hosts the dragon boat races
(see link above).
This year Dearest and I ended up on a team.
Tonight is the first practice.
The weather is calling for wind gusts up to 16 mph -
On an open lake -rowing- this kind of wind can be an issue.

Maybe I should find a wet suit :)

I will update you more as things progress - the races are this Saturday.
