The Rainbow Region Dragon Boat Club is hosting its inaugural regatta at Shaws Bay, Ballina.
The event will be opened with a welcome to Country and an Indigenous boat-smoking ceremony from 1pm on Saturday 23 August followed by a ‘Chase Race’ with turns over a 250km course, and a 100-metre round-robin event. These races are for club teams that are coming from other areas.
The club has eight community teams, put together by local businesses that are registered for the events on Sunday 24 August, and are ready to join in on the excitement of dragon boating.
This will be a thrilling Dragon Boat Regatta – all are welcome. There will be food vendors, coffee wagons, and merchandising tents as well as raffles.
This exciting event is an alcohol-free, child-friendly weekend that offers fun for all.
