Waiting for loading with our team buddies from Hervey Bay

Waiting for loading with our team buddies from Hervey Bay

While we didn’t bring home any “bling” from the Te Waka regatta, our Open 10’s paddling was nice and strong, and was up with the other teams, even though we had only three men in our boat while other boats had more men. A great job done by all paddlers!

Only five more sleeps and two more training sessions, weather permitting, before the State Title at Kawana. We are feeling fit and ready to go! While we enjoy competing and being on the water, we love being away for the weekend as a team.

April 6 see the start of the Wide Bay Series of regattas which is a series of five regattas between Bundaberg on April 6, then Hervey Bay, Cooloola, 1770 and Burnett River. The Cooloola Dragons regatta at TCB is a great event which will be held on July 20/21.

Many teams will converge on Tin Can Bay to participate in this regatta so mark these dates in your calendar – it will be a great weekend of Dragon Boating,

We are always looking for new members especially men as they usually make up the “engine room” of the boat! Ladies, we are looking for you too! It is a great way of getting and keeping fit – just being on the water is the bonus.
