The Lennox Head–based Rainbow Region Dragon Boat Club has a burgeoning trophy cabinet after implementing a rigorous paddling-skill-regimen through 2018.
The new strength of the paddlers across the club means we can now bring a team together for national and regional regattas and produce consistent results in all weather conditions.
2018 saw more forays into the tough southeast QLD metropolitan competitions.
Rainbow Dragons, against some of the youngest and finest of the state, achieved not only a place in these regattas but also respect from the Queensland clubs.
Another Club highlight was the hosting of our own regatta in late August. The event is considered the beginning of the annual regatta season and attracts clubs from northern NSW and southeast QLD.
Over the Christmas holidays there are Rainbow Dragons trialling for prized seats on their team for the Nationals. The goals are back-to-back events and improvements on 2018’s third places.
Rainbow Dragons are also preparing to race at Wellington New Zealand’s International Regatta in March 2019.
Dragon boating is a sport that suits men and women of all ages, fitness levels and abilities. And all are welcome to have a go with the Rainbow Dragons.
