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.

Training Suspended Due to COVID-19

DBNSW continues to monitor the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation; especially the impact it could have on our members, our clubs, and our events.

“Social distancing” is the one of the recommended activities that we all should take to help flatten the curve of spread of the virus.  Dragon Boating is a sport where it is near impossible to achieve the 1.5 metre social distancing requirement, from sitting in the boat, to handling it on and off the water.

Until further notice, DBNSW is recommending suspension of all Dragon Boating activities. So stay safe and take care.
