VIDEO: Falmouth Dragon Boat Challenge
Teams took to the waters off Falmouth yesterday to do battle in the 20th Dragon Boat Challenge.
A total of 13 teams signed up to the event, which raises money for the RNLI.
Organiser Mike Lanyon said he was delighted with the day, which was enjoyed by the many spectators.
"Next year is our coming of age and we are planning for a bigger and better challenge," he said.
The annual challenge is orgainsed by the Rotary Club. Teams from businesses, sports clubs and public houses from across Cornwall compete for glory in a day-long event.
Dragon boats are 40ft open boats powered by up to 16 competitors using paddles. They are steered by a helmsman and also have a drummer on the bow providing the rhythm for the paddlers.
