Joutes sur L’Eau

Title: Joutes sur L’Eau
Translated Title: 
Jousting on water
Jousting on water. Parade of participants. A numerous and enthusiastic crowd came to watch this sport full of emotions. Ten solid rowers throw, with all the strength of their paddles, every boat one towards the other. The children follow with a lot of interest these unplanned swims. When both the jousters are this good, it happens that there is no dry king. Different kinds of jousting are played depending on the country, with or without a shield, with longer or shorter lances. The origin of jousts is as ancient as that of tournaments and dates back to the XII th century; but they were then practiced on a horse and were more dangerous. The End.
