Joutes nautiques / Water joustings

Posted by
Mhelene (Villiers-sur-Marne, France) on 6 September 2010 in Sport & Recreation and Portfolio.

It is a form of jousting where each adversary is standing on a boat. The goal of the sport is to send the adversary into the water.

DULCIE from Danville, CA, United States

That's one of the better action shots I've seen !
That fellow looks like he is not only going in the water, but is getting smashed in the face as well.
What we won't do for our sports. Great clear, colorful image, Helene, with wonderful verve !

@DULCIE: Thank you Dulcie . There are some rules and the jouster uses his lance to push his opponent off the platform and into the water. But he can push only on the shield . This jouster holds his breath during the joust and by falling in the water.

Fokkio from Netherlands
