We compete at regattas all across Victoria during our season (August to April). We are the current Victorian champion club in multiple categories. We compete each year at the Australian National Championships and have won many Gold, Silver and Bronze medals over the years. We have also qualified for the 2018 Club Crew World Championships (CCWC) in Hungary where we will defend or Gold, Silver and Bronze medals from the 2016 CCWC in Adelaide. 

We pride ourselves on having a lighthearted attitude off the water and when we are not competing. We hold regular social events and make every regatta a fun one! You can often hear us laughing and joking from the other end of Docklands! 

The opportunity's to compete internationally are boundless! In 2017 we competed in Hong Kong & our ladies won a bronze medal! In 2018 we are off to Hungary. Where will we go next? Join us and find out!

Going to the gym is way better with friends! We have our own gym facilities and train 3x per week in the gym as a group, training specific exercises to target Dragonboating. It is a full body workout and the best way to make gainz!
