All working together with the same focus
What I enjoy about dragon boat racing is the contest, when there are twenty paddlers in a boat all working together with the same focus and aggression. It is brilliant.
Formed great friendships
During my first two seasons with Black Dragons I have competed in Kota Kinabalu, won gold medals in state championships and competed in a national championship. This coming season I will be competing in a world championship. Along the way I have formed great friendships, improved my fitness and achieved my fitness goals.
Motivation to be fitter
Started dragon boat racing in my early sixties - this sport and this club have given me motivation to be fitter! Also great friendships.

I have been a member of Black Dragons for the past 5 seasons, in this time Black Dragons have given me the opportunity to represent them in State, National and World Dragon Boating events and Black Dragons have come home with medals each time.
