Dragon boat paddling started in Streaky Bay in 2007. We started with 2x 10’s boats, moved on to a 20’s boat on loan from DBSA and now have our own Champion 20 seater.
Our members have competed at regattas in Adelaide, at master’s games, at state & national competitions, as members of Adelaide Sea Dragons (as at October 2019 as Black Sea Dragons), and on occasion as part of a combined west coast team – Ceduna, Streaky & Port Lincoln. Our members have also competed as part of the Regional State team. We’ve supported the Port Lincoln dragon boat clubs with their corporate challenges, and we’ve participated in a joint club social paddling weekend, with Ceduna and Port Lincoln, at Venus Bay. We do Come & Try’s with students from local schools.
Dragon boating is not all about competing – some members are competitive and do travel to competitions, other members choose not to compete at all. We all paddle for fitness, fun and friendship and because we are part of a bigger club, those who want to compete can do so and those who don’t want to don’t need to feel that they should.
Dragon boating is open to all age groups from 12 upwards, any gender, any fitness level. We welcome any new prospective paddlers to come along and give it a go.
