The Australian Dragon Boat Championships, or AusChamps, were held at Lake Kawana on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast early March. They are considered to be Australia’s premier dragon boating event attracting the fastest, fittest and most furious paddlers in all categories from juniors to seniors, from all states and territories who compete against one another for the title of National Champion.
Three paddlers from the Coffs Coast Dragon Boat Club - Sarsi Webber, Sandy Paull and Sharon Williams when through a stringent qualifying process last year to be selected to join paddlers from other North Coast clubs to compete under the banner of the NSW Far North Coast team.
The many months of intense training, peak fitness and determination paid off for the Far North Coast team who were victorious in winning Gold medals in the 500mt. Mixed and Women’s events and a Silver medal for the 100mt. Relay.
