What an amazing campaign from our Pacific Dragons dragon boat crew and NSW representatives who competed in the Premier division at the Australian Dragon Boat championships in Perth πŸ‡¦πŸ‡Ί πŸ›ΆπŸ˜Š#

Leading the charge from our Dragon Boat coaching team was Dino Chai and Leida Jj both fresh from competing in the gold-medal winning NSW Premier crew at the State vs State Championship along with our other representatives Karina Piddington, Harriet Broad, Cassandra Ballebye for Senior A; Geoff Eldridge and Joanne Petterson for Senior C. Well done team! πŸ‘ πŸ‘

We fought hard against some tough competition, but after a nice home cooked team dinner, we brought the orange magic and dug deep across 200m, 500m and 2km racing.

Our Women’s crew achieved:

  • 500m Small Boat – πŸ₯ˆ
  • 200m Small Boat – πŸ₯‰
  • 2km Small Boat – πŸ₯ˆ

Our Opens crew fought valiantly, taking out 4th in the 2km race, only 9 seconds separating 1st-4th.

Congratulations to all who competed at this National regatta. A special mention to the awesome Vivienne Wigg, our super sweep who steered all 17 races.

The Pacific Dragons are so proud of our team who are now enjoying a well deserved holiday road trip to Rottnest Island, Busselton and Margaret River.
