Docklands Cup is up for grabs Image

Local and regional dragon boat teams will battle it out for glory at the Docklands Cup this month.


Around 300 paddlers are expected to compete in 200 metre, 500 metre and 2 km races throughout the event.

According to Dragon Boat Victoria spokesperson Melissa O’Brien, around 12 clubs are expected to compete, including teams from Ballarat, Geelong and Wodonga.

“Participants from all around the state will be invited to battle it out for the coveted Docklands Cup and competition promises to be strong with a number of Victorian paddlers having recently represented Australia at the World Dragon Boat Championships in Hungary in July,” Ms O’Brien said.

The Docklands Cup is on Sunday, December 8 in Victoria Harbour with races starting at 9 am and continuing throughout the day.

Victoria Harbour also hosted the Australian Corporate Games on November 23, while the WTC Wharf Dragon Boat Cup on November 17 saw 300 paddlers compete.

For those inspired by the thrill of the competition, Docklands dragon boat club the Melbourne Flames is holding a free come-and-try session on Sunday, December 15.

Potential paddlers should head down to Shed 2 on North Wharf Rd at 8.30 am on December 15 to take part. See http://www.melbourneflames.com.au for information.
