Local dragon boaters will head to Hungary this month to compete in the World Dragon Boat Championships.

In total, 27 paddlers from Docklands-based teams, the Melbourne Flames, Dragon Masters, Yarra River Dragons and CYSM Sea Dragons will compete in the championships.

Melbourne Flames coach Serghei Cusca will join the team in Hungary as coach of the Australian team.

He said all team members were training at least six times per week, including four sessions on the water and two at the gym.

“As a coach all I ask is that everyone performs the best they can within the team and from that the results will follow,” Mr Cusca said.

The team will arrive in Hungary for the championships on July 16, with the six days of competition starting on July 23.

The team will compete in a range of divisions including Premiers (under 40s), Masters (under 50s), Grand Masters (under 60s) and Great Grand Masters (Over 60s).
