Dragon boating is an excellent way to get fit - it's a full body workout covering upper body, core and legs.
Hello, we're the Flying Dragons and our club has 3 training locations - Pyrmont, Narooma and us at Narrabeen Lake.
As much as we love training and competitions we're also a social bunch with mix of bbqs, pub visits and the occasional weekend away for races.
We train every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday at Narrabeen Lake.
Tuesday - 6:00pm to 7:30pm
Thursday - 6:00pm to 7:30pm
Sunday - 8:00am to 10:00am
What to Expect at Training
We arrive to training 5 minutes prior so we'll have the boats into the water without delay. Then we'll do a warm up, hop into the boat and go out for an awesome paddle. After we return to shore we get the boats out of the water and finish up with a warm down.
We race throughout the NSW dragon boating season which runs from September through to April. It involves 20 paddlers, a sweep (steerer) and a drummer in a purpose built boat competing in races over various distances (e.g. 200m and 500m).
Try dragon boat racing
Being a racing club we're looking for new members who are able to attend 2 - 3 training sessions per week and can compete at the race days (approx. 1 per month during the season).
You must be warned ... racing is totally addictive.
