“We will take you and a friend for a relaxing ride in a dragon boat, where en­joy­ment and safety is our pri­or­ity and pad­dling is op­tional,” found­ing mem­ber of Mt Warn­ing Dragon Boat Club Chris Lonie said.

“A lovely morn­ing tea awaits peo­ple on the re­turn to shore pre­pared by our friendly club mem­bers.
