Race principle: 
The dragon boat will be occupied with 8 paddlers from each team. That means that in the boat are 16 paddlers together. The boat is then pulled by the organizator in the middle of the pool. Here the race is started with international orders: „Are you ready! Attention! Go!“ Finishlines are marked on swimmingpool with ropes and controlled by Line referees. When the boat reaches the finishline(rope) the referee raises a flag and the race ends. In case of sinking the boat the race is repeated.

Complete race rules are available in "Indoor dragon boat cup rules and regulations document".
