Dragon Boat Races
This was Dragon Boat race weekend at Flushing Meadow Park. A nice crowd and a good time for all, especially the vendor of $3.00 corn.
This always brings out nautical nostalgia for me. The guy beating the drum in the front is the Engineering Officer of the Watch (EEOW) and the guy in the back steering is the Officer of the Deck (OOD). If it was a Greek Trireme then you would see the Chief Engineer. He'd be the one with the whip.
