The Nature Coast Dragon Boat Club will open its doors and invite the community to come and try the sport of dragon boating for FREE on Saturday, November 26, 2022. Over 50 open days across the state will be held from participating NSW Dragon Boats (DBNSW) clubs. Encourage everyone to try dragon boating, a unique team sport designed for the whole community to participate in.
Club President Lyn Stadtmiller says she is proud to open its doors and invite the local community to come and try dragon boating. “Dragon boating is a great sport to get involved in because it combines physical fitness and a sense of community. We are especially lucky to be able to use the beautiful Moruya River to do our training and we invite everyone to come and try”.
The Nature Coast Dragon Boat Club has been operating in Moruya since 2006 and will open its doors to all members of the community as part of the event.
Lyn said: “We’ll be on the water at 10am and you can find us next to Moruya Pool, right by the markets. No special clothing is required, but you must wear shoes that can get wet. We will provide all the material. ”
Dragon Boats NSW managing director Tony Henderson said the statewide open day is an important step in building the brand and profile of the sport of dragon boating. “I invite the whole community to come to their local dragon boat club and enjoy the atmosphere of this lively and inclusive sport. All ages, abilities and backgrounds are welcome, and the paddler’s journey is a choose-your-own adventure. From social rower to elite, you will find a club that suits you.
