“SCIENCE PEOPLE, PADDLE PEOPLE” was shouted out loudly at the riverside last Sunday, when 19 paddlers from 16 different countries climbed their dragon boat three times to race against students and researchers from different universities in the Hochschul Cup. The Welcome Center has organized international dragon boats in the annual dragon boat festivals since 2015 – but we didn’t win a race before. We’re happy to claim a podium finish at the annual dragon boat cup this year … and finally got an ice cake!

Two trainings before the actual race helped everyone to achive a place on the podium. To actually be able to move the boat, there are few crucial things to consider: paddle in synch, listen to the drummer and give the competitors a big smile. This year it worked out well.  We would be happy to crew a boat again in 2019 – stay tuned, it will be announced in early spring.
