Invitation to try Dragon boating
The Rainbow Region Dragon Boat Club are hosting a ‘Come and Try’ afternoon at Shaws Bay in East Ballina on Wednesday February 20.
The free event will include a sausage sizzle (with onions whichever way you want them) and time chatting with club members.
‘Dragon boating is a sport that is for men and women of any age, ability, and fitness level. It’s not uncommon for people quite confident about their fitness levels to come off the water surprised by how challenging dragon boating is, while those less confident are excited by what they have achieved,’ club president Libby Woodbry said.
‘It is a full-body workout and our accredited coaches make sure you do so. Expect to get a bit wet and have fun.’
As sports go, dragon boating dates back 2000+ years in China and has become a modern sporting phenomenon that has spread around the world.
Rainbow Dragons have raced in regional, metro, and national regattas; and members have joined teams to paddle in New Zealand, China, Hong Kong, and Italy.
Bring sunblock, light enclosed footwear, and a water bottle. Comfortable shirt and pants are best.
Meet at Pop Denison Park, off Compton Drive in East Ballina, at 5.30pm Wednesday February 20. Ph: 0408 776 171.
