Dragons fire at state titles

Posted: 12pm 07 Apr 2021

Redcliffe Red Dragons struck gold, silver and bronze at the 2021 Dragon Boat Queensland State Championships on Lake Kawana, before Easter.

In one of the Red Dragon’s most successful events, all the golds came in the 40+ category, in Mixed and Open races over 200, 500m and 1km.

The three silver medals were from the Open and Mixed Prems - paddlers over 12 with no maximum age limit - over 500m and 1km.

Red Dragons had three bronze medals in the 55+ Mixed 500m and 1km, Open 55+ 200m and one from the Open 40+ 500m.

Paddle problem

In the latter, Dave broke his paddle with the first stroke, but continued with half a paddle helping the boat to third, just 3.58 seconds off a silver medal.

Red Dragon’s 40+ Mixed 500m and 200m teams had perfect records at Kawana, winning their heats and finals.

On day two, all Redcliffe crews that did not medal finished fourth or fifth in their events.

The club started in 2005 with 68 members, a number which has now grown to 102.

Red Dragons cater for all fitness levels and ages – currently the youngest is 14 and oldest in their 70s.

Based at Talobilla Park, off Klingner Rd, Kippa-Ring, Red Dragons welcome newcomers at training nights and come-and-try days.
