Thank you for visiting us at our Fair Day stall.  If you didn't, sorry we missed you.  We will be having our Open Day this Saturday in celebration of Mardi Gras and introducing people to the sport of Dragon Boating.  If you have never tried or if you've tried and want to give it another go.  Come out with us on the water and then have a BBQ with us out of the water.  This is a great time to meet the members of the club who will be wearing our club colours.  We will also be having special pricing for you to join us for the rest of this season's dragon boating, but remember you get three free sessions with us.

DBNSW Regatta Series - Race 4 (15 January 2017)

Wowsers! There goes the final points regatta prior to Chinese New Year as well as State and National Championship races.  We saw great spirit, passion and drive from all the teams that went out on the water.

With the morning races focusing on the mixed crews, we had Gin, Tonic, and Mixed Master go out fighting for a spot in the Finals.  While in the afternoon, our Prem Opens, Prem Women and illustrious Masters Women all competed heavily in their divisions and all crews made it to the Finals!  Well done to all the crews with each team managing to get at least a 2nd place finish in one of their heats.  It really shows the depth of talent we are becoming as a Dragon Boat Club.

Ultimately, you'd probably like to know the results of the day... drum roll please...

Master Mixed - Gold

Prem Mixed - Fourth in the Finals

Master Women - Gold

Prem Women - Silver

Prem Opens - Fourth in the Finals

See you all at Chinese New Year Races!!!
