Introduction of DAragonboat
龙舟之简介

A dragon boat or dragonboat is nothing but a human-powered watercraft. It is made out of teak wood in the Pearl River Delta region of China's southern Guangdong Province. It is made of various designs and sizes。
龙舟其实就是一艘人力的船只。龙舟是用中国广东珠三角地区生产的柚木制造的。它有许多不同的设计和尺寸。

Dragon boats form the base of the team paddling sport called dragon boat racing, an amateur water sport having its roots in an ancient folk lore of competing villagers. It has been held over the past 2000 years all over southern China。
龙舟是一项团队划船运动,即赛龙舟的基础。赛龙舟是一项业余水上运动,起源于关于村民竞争的一个古老的民间传说。赛龙舟在中国南方已经举办了超过2000年。

Dragon boat racing has surfaced in modern times as an international sport, starting in 1976 in Hong Kong. However, the history of dragon boats in competition goes as far back as the same age as the aboriginal games of Olympia taking place in ancient Greece。
赛龙舟在近代已经成为一项国际运动,在1976年开始于香港。然而,赛龙舟的历史可以追溯到与古希腊原住民举办的奥林匹克竞赛同龄。

Crew
龙舟参赛队员

The usual crew of a contemporary dragon boat typically consists of 22 people, comprising majorly of 20 paddler-pairs facing the bow of the boat. Then there is 1 drummer or caller at the bow end, facing the paddlers and finally 1 sweep or the one who steers at the rear end of the boat。
当代的龙舟上一般有22个参赛队员,包括20个向着船头的划手,还有1个面对着划手,站在船尾的鼓手或锣手。最后,还有一个舵手或者说站在船尾掌控方向的人。

Dragon boats do vary in length however, naturally altering the crew size accordingly, from 10 paddlers in small dragon boats up to 50 paddlers in the traditional boats。
龙舟的长短不一,参赛队员的人数也相应有所变化,从只有10个划手的小龙舟到有50个划手的传统龙舟不等。
