The Cooloola Dragon Boat Club will be holding a free “Give it a go” paddling morning on Sunday, October 16 at 9.30am at the Yacht Club at Norman Point. If you wish to participate please phone Sandra on 0402352756 to register your interest and meet at the Yacht Club on the day.
Paddling is one of those sports that can cater for all ages and most physically impaired persons. So come and enjoy the morning with the Dragons on our beautiful waterways. Make sure you bring water, hat and sunscreen.
Unfortunately the Hervey Bay Regatta was cancelled because of wind and swell. However we still enjoyed the day with beach activities.
Participating clubs played cricket (not traditional) and tugged on a thin rope for a ‘tug of war’. We enjoyed a lunch prepared by Meals on Wheels. Great to see the community involved.
The Regatta has now been transferred to the Bucca (Bundaberg) Regatta on October 8. That will be a big weekend having two regattas on the same day. This day will decide the Wide Bay Series winner.
If you would like to try dragon boating before our “Give it a go” day please meet us at the Yacht Club’s hardstand at 3.30pm on a Thursday or 7.30am Sunday. See you on the water!
