Dragons Abreast Newcastle
We are a group of adventurous women and men many of whom have had a diagnosis of breast cancer. We have decided to take up the challenge of paddling a Dragon Boat. We find this a great way to exercise with the added benefits for those women who suffer lymphedema after breast surgery.
We meet every Sunday morning at 8am for a paddle and maybe coffee after.
We aim to have a lot of fun and support each other while raising awareness of breast cancer in the community.
All ages, shapes and sizes, both men and women are welcome. Although we are affiliated with Dragons Abreast Australia (DAA), supporters form a large section of our local club.
DRAGONS ABREAST TRAINING TIMES
Dragons Abreast squad meet on Sunday mornings at The Rowing Shed, Tully Street, Carrington (just drive over the bridge, first left and next left again and then at the water’s edge you will see us.)
Warm up starts at 7:45am and we are on the water at 8:00am.
Training takes place on Throsby Creek and if the weather permits we paddle up our beautiful Harbour.
After training the squad heads up the road to Carrington Bowling club for a great chat, laughter, coffee and breakfast if you wish.
