Nationals 2017 Albury-Wondonga
Medal hungry dragon boaters from across the nation descended upon Albury-Wodonga in late April 2017 for the National Championships.
Our Senior C Mixed, Senior B Womens and Premier Womens small boat crews battled it out against some fierce competition over five days of racing. The heavy fresh water proved a challenge, as were some not so pleasant conditions at times, but our paddlers showed grit, determination and put in 110%. Our crews received plenty of compliments on their sportsmanship and professionalism on the water, and our fabulous and flamboyant Sea Dragons cheer squad made their presence known!
Congratulations to our paddlers on some stellar grand finals results:
