“We cater for men and women of all ages,” said Club President Donna Lerway.

“We have teams participating in regattas in Sydney and in the northern region.

“We’re located at Peel St, Toukley next to the Marine Rescue Centre and train late afternoon on Wednesday as well as Sunday mornings on Budgewoi Lake.

“After a short five years in the sport I have had the opportunity to compete in Hong Kong, Singapore, the Gold Coast and Adelaide as well as Regatta’s all over NSW, I am now the Club Captain.

“Previously being a Rugby player, I am stoked that I still get to compete in sport in my 50s,” she said.

Central Coast Dragon Boat Club has just held its AGM and with a COVID Safe Plan approved, is ready for a new season.

“We will be holding some Learn to Paddle Sessions over November and December and are offering five sessions free of charge.
