THE Orana Dragon Boaters have re­turned from an­other week­end of fun, friend­ship and fleec­ing medals from crews all over the world.

The Dragons were part of the Pan Pacs Mas­ters Games on the Gold Coast, an event in­volv­ing 41 sports and 850 pad­dlers from Canada, Sin­ga­pore, New Zealand and other coun­tries.

The lo­cals won medals in two dif­fer­ent cat­e­gories in the 200 me­tre races.

“We also raced in 500 me­tre events on Satur­day. All races were very close. Then on

Sun­day we raced in a 5km race against 11 other teams,” Chris Robin­son told us.

“Mel Set­ter­field and Sue Miles (younger team) were in an­other team. They took a sil­ver medal while our Dragons raced bril­liantly to come fourth. We were all within a minute of each other!”

The Dragons pad­dle ev­ery Tues­day and Thurs­day af­ter­noon on the Mac­quarie at 6.15 from their Sandy Beach “mariner”. New­com­ers are al­ways wel­come.
