Well, you can see them breathing fire as they race to win on Snapper Creek, Tin Can Bay, July 9 and 10 from 9am.
Saturday will feature your local Cooloola Dragons competing in the start of the 2016 Wide Bay Series against 1770, Bundaberg and Hervey Bay, so we need your support to come cheer us on.
There’s also an exciting finish to the day being the “Diamond Dash” a technical style race invented by our very own coach Gayle Barnett.
Cooloola Dragons have won this event since its debut in 2014. More teams are now entering and they are seriously after our Dragon’s Head and the cash.
Sunday’s racing is the annual Sleepy Lagoon Hotel Dragon Boat Regatta, hosted by Cooloola Dragon Boat Club and is the first regatta of the 2016 Queensland racing season.
Teams competing are from 1770 in the north to Tweed Heads in the south. There will be 300+ competitors, plus their family and friends enjoying our local hospitality. Their teams will be bringing some serious action on the water, not to be missed.
A favourite highlight of the day will be The Carol Waitohi Trophy race by the “Pinkies”. Every year these survivors of breast cancer bring their own special quality to the event. And they have so much fun, so watch out it’s infectious!
Food and drinks are available on both days, and the Tin Can Bay Yacht club deck and beer garden is the perfect place for you and the family to sit and watch the fun.
If you haven’t seen Dragon Boat Racing before, then do yourself a big favour………
