Cooloola Dragon Boat Club compete at Queensland State Titles

2017 State Titles at Lake Kawana, Sunshine Coast, done and dusted for another year, and our training over the three months had paid off, with some strong paddling. Unfortunately we did not bring any bling home this year, but were very happy that we were able to keep up with the bigger clubs from down south.

Saturday saw the Senior B Women’s team competing against teams from Brisbane River Dragons, Manly, Maroochy and Bundaberg, and our first race was for lane allocation for the Grand Final, where we placed 4th.

Our race in the Grand Final was very strong and we placed 4th, which is a good effort from us as we had 18 paddlers in the boat (instead of the 20 the others had).

Sunday we had two teams paddling, the Senior B Women’s and Senior C Women’s. The Senior B teams had 18 teams in this event, which was going to make it hard for us again up against the bigger clubs to get into a Grand Final, but we did have a Tail Final where we finished 3rd in this race against six teams,  and was a great result for us.

Senior C women’s team had to finish 6th or higher to get into a final, but unfortunately just fell short of this and were knocked out.

We will now be concentrating on the upcoming Wide Bay Series with the first one at Bundaberg on May 13.
