Dragon boats hit water for victims
THEY share a love of being on the water, but it has taken a flood to bring the Coffs Coast’s two dragon boat clubs together.
To build bonds between their clubs, and to raise money for the Queensland flood appeal, the Titivators Dragon Boat club, which was established to support cancer survivors and their friends, invited the Coffs Coast Dragon Boat Club for a paddle on their piece of aquatic paradise, the Kalang River at Urunga.
More than 60 paddlers hit the river before adjourning for a very convivial breakfast.
Along the way they raised $568 for the flood appeal and promised to build their friendship and rivalry.
