Western Region Regatta Update

The Western Region Dragon Boat Regatta Committee has cancelled the 2020 Western Region Dragon Boat Regatta that was to be held at Lake Canobolas in Orange on Sunday 1st November, 2020.

It is  disappointing news but the decision was based on a number of factors –  low water levels at waterways  and restrictions on paddling due to the Corona Virus  Pandemic (COVID-19).  DBNSW have been contacted and they  understand this decision.  They have transferred the 2020 Regatta Application to 2021.  They have set the date as Sunday 7th November, 2021 with the location to be confirmed. So please save this date on your calendar.

Bei Loon 8 km Challenge

Colour City Dragons participated in the weekend’s Bei Loon 8km Challenge around Scotland Island, Sydney on Saturday.

It was the first time in five years that conditions were ideal to paddle around the Island rather than do 4km laps in Pittwater. The Regatta has now had 30 different clubs take part.

Pittwater came first with a time of 46.54, Canberra’s Komodo Dragons placed second with 48.27 and Nowra Waterdragons placed third with a time of 49.07.

Colour City Dragons edged out Hawkesbury River Dragons with a respectable time of 59.33.
