Start dragon boating!

Rainbow Region Dragon Boat Club had 65 keen people turn up for a come and try day recently at the Lennox Markets but they would still like more people to join the paddling fun.

The club is the proud owner of two boats and is comprised of four teams - a mixed team, an all women's team, a men's team and the Rainbow Dragons Abreast, a team of breast cancer survivors and their supporters.

Members compete in local regattas and have five different training times during the week at Lake Ainsworth. They would love to hear from interested paddlers or businesses that may be able to offer sponsorship.
