Regular visitors to the Manly waterfront may have seen members of the Manly Dragon Boat Club training hard in the early hours of the morning. Their hard work has been rewarded with placings in multiple divisions at the Queensland State Titles.

Manly Dragon Boat Club, operating out of Wynnum Manly Yacht Club, recently celebrated temendous success at the Queensland State Titles held at Kawana in March. Here’s a rundown of the winners:

500m Silver: Senior C Women, Senior C Open and Senior C Mixed
Bronze: Senior B Mixed

200m Silver: Senior B Mixed, Senior B Open
Bronze: Senior C Mixed, Senior C Women

2000m Silver: Senior B Mixed

1000m 4th Place: Prem Mixed

2000m Gold: Senior C Mixed

Club members then travelled to Adelaide in early April to participate in the National Championships. It was a smaller than normal party, but all crews performed superbly; some club members also paddled with distinction in the Queensland representative crews.
