Rowing club prepare for tough competition
The Mackay Dragon Boat Club the Stingers are ramping up their training in preparation for the state titles in March.
The club has high hopes to improve on last year’s success in tough competition.
Spirits are high as the Mackay Dragon Boat Club will send down a squad of 30 paddlers to Lake Kawana on the Sunshine Coast.
The Club will be going to the National Dragon Boat Festival in May at Lake Kawana.
The Club will then travel to Townsville in June to compete against some of the northern clubs in a competitive regatta.
Anyone interested in Dragon Boating is more than welcome to come and try, regardless of your age, size or fitness level.
Rowers come out to train every Tuesday and Thursday at 5pm while rowers also meet at 7am Sunday morning at the Breakwater Bar and Restaurant.
Just some water, a hat and sunscreen.
