On Saturday 1st March, the Sussex Inlet River Dragons created club history. A crew of nineteen River Dragons, combined with six from Narooma Blue Water Dragons to form the Blue Inlet River Dragons team. Meeting at Lake Illawarra early that morning and enduring drought breaking rain, we contested the Sports Teams Events at the prestigious Shellharbour Dragon Boat Challenge. A fabulous team effort to win our first “major” event. To celebrate our victory, we gathered at the RSL on Sunday night. Meeting Room 1 was tastefully decorated in team colours and the table was festooned with tiny trophies, medals and congratulations stickers.
