This looks like a much more reasonable way to resolve racing protests than the way it's currently done.
The jousters look well ballasted. Maybe I could apply.
I saw this in Sete 10 or 11 years ago whilst visiting Montpellier on business. Fantastic spectacle, the waterside bars put up tiered seating and tables on the waters edge. Sete had safety boats but thier purpose seemed to be to retrieve any gear from the water, the losing jouster was left to swim to the side!
