Brisbane River Dragons managed to scoop Gold in all categories in the 2000 metre races at the Manly dragon boat regatta held at Lake Kawana on 23 November. In addition to the Gold’s in the 2000 metre races BRD also won Gold in the Open 500 metre and Silver in the Women and Mixed 500 metre categories.
Extremely hot weather and a strong head wind during the day ensured tough race conditions. This was the first regatta for several of our new members and with the help of the more experienced paddlers everyone came though without incident.
Thanks to our sweeps who guided everyone around the course, to paddlers who were used as drummers on the day and to the paddlers for their application and dedication to the sport..
