Wagga Wagga Dragon Boat Regatta was the epitome of friendliness with a great time had by all. It started for the Lachlan Dragons with a team barbecue on the regatta eve with a lot of fun and laughs shared by the crew and some friendly rivalry aimed at opposition paddlers who were sharing the area.
And the atmosphere continued throughout the Regatta Day with lots of jovial challenges exchanged between competing teams.
The Forbes Lachlan Dragons raced in all three categories: men’s, women’s and mixed – with the men’s, combined with Sudu Dragons of Wollongong, racing a beautiful final to take the third place trophy.
The coaches were very happy with all races.
“You all raced extremely well against very stiff competition,” Carmen Stephens said.
The Lachlan Dragons will stay geared up under two inspiring coaches – with a bit of a break over Christmas – in readiness for the Canberra Regatta in January.
Back home on Lake Forbes, many new paddlers have been turning up for a try and loving it.
