Dragon boat racers of the Tweed River are calling for new recruits to continue their decade-long run of fun, friendship, triumph and resilience.
Dragons Abreast Mount Warning is a local dragon boating club for survivors of breast cancer that is affiliated with the sporting group, the Mount Warning Dragon Boat Club.
‘Dragon boat paddling was established here 10 years ago, by a group of breast cancer survivors and their supporters, who fund-raised enough to lease two boats, and it has been going from strength to strength ever since. Both clubs have won awards at world paddling events,’ according to Meg Main secretary of the DAMW.
Both clubs train together locally on the Tweed River from the Condong Boat Jetty (near Murwillumbah) on Saturday mornings (7.30am) and Tuesday and Thursday evenings.
‘Everyone is welcome. Whether you just want to get fit, or whether you are keenly competitive, there is a place for you in our boat,’ Meg said.
‘Be prepared to meet new friends, have lots of fun, improve your fitness and learn new skills,’ she said.
