CONTINUANO LE NORMALI ATTIVITA' DELLA VENICE CANOE & DRAGON BOAT

Il Corona Virus è un virus influenzale al pari di molti altri.
Le attività, dal 09 marzo 2020, continueranno senza particolari variazioni.
Ciò che caratterizza maggiormente il Corona Virus è la sua novità genetica.
Come scritto da molti virologi, il corpo umano, non conoscendo questa tipologia di virus, si infetta facilmente. Ma altrettanto facilmente, il corpo umano di una persona adulta e in salute, elimina il virus e guarisce in pochi giorni.
Il problema di tanto allarmismo nelle Istituzioni italiane è riassumibile in due principali motivi:
1) non sono state fermate a tempo debito le persone che provenivano dalla Cina con voli che facevano scalo in Stati UE o scali intermedi;
2) il Corona Virus, essendo un virus “nuovo” per il nostro sistema immunitario, è molto aggressivo. Un’infezione di massa richiederebbe l’uso di molti posti letto negli ospedali. In questo momento, il servizio sanitario italiano non è capace di assorbire un grande numero di infetti presso le strutture ospedaliere. Questo è il motivo per cui lo Stato italiano e molte regioni italiane hanno chiesto alla popolazione di rimanere a casa e di non frequentare luoghi pubblici (scuole, musei, palestre, ecc.).

Nel caso ci fossero novità relative a nuove problematiche di contagio da Corona Virus, la Venice Canoe & Dragon Boat provvederà prontamente ad informare tutti i partecipanti alle attività.

Press release of 27 February 2020

THE NORMAL ACTIVITIES CONTINUE

Corona Virus is a flu virus like many others.
All our activities, from the 9th march 2020, will continue without any particular changes.
What most characterizes the Corona Virus is its genetic novelty.
As written by many virologists, the human body, not knowing this type of virus, easily becomes infected. But just as easily, the human body of an adult and healthy person eliminates the virus and heals in a few days.
The problem of such alarmism in the Italian institutions can be summarized in two main reasons:
1) people coming from China were not stopped in due time with flights calling in EU states or intermediate stops;
2) the Corona Virus, being a "new" virus for our immune system, is very aggressive. A mass infection would require the use of many hospital beds. At this time, the Italian health service is unable to absorb a large number of infected at hospital facilities. This is the reason why the Italian state and many Italian regions have asked the population to stay at home and not to go to public places (schools, museums, gyms, etc.).

Should there be any news relating to new problems of contagion from Corona Virus, the Club will promptly inform all the participants of our activities.

Misurina is the stage for the Europe’s Ice Dragon Boat

Press Release 22/02/2020

Auronzo International Ice Dragon Boat Festival – 22 February 2020 – Misurina

Misurina is the stage for the Europe’s Ice Dragon Boat

Auronzo International ICE DRAGON BOAT Festival

The sun shone on the first edition of the Auronzo International Ice Dragon Boat Festival. All the teams were amazed at the incredible setting.

The young athletes from Auronzo di Cadore and Dobbiaco opened the day with a demonstration of ice hockey.

Irish, German, Hungarian, English and many, many Italians took part in the opening ceremony with the traditional Eye-Dotting Ceremony.

This was followed by many races. The sun that cheered the spirits of all present, also heated the ice, creating some difficulties for the teams who had to work very quickly to avoid the ice skates attached to the boats from freezing to the ice.

But the smiles and the enthusiasm were enough to make for some exciting challenges.

The Hungarians of Dunai Sarkanyok dominated the Open category.

In the other categories, there were various winners amongst the teams. The Women’s Social was won by the Brentane of Valbrenta, Cuore di Donne from Bergamo won the BCS-Pink Ladies, the Germans from FKV Dragonauten were first in the Mixed and the Irish Carlow Dagons won the Women’s category.

A very enthusiastic Mayor of Auronzo di Cadore, Mrs Tatiana Pais Becher was present at the opening ceremony and the medal presentations.
