Victor Dragons are based in Encounter Bay. Our two dragon boats are a regular sight year round for those living or holidaying on Encounter Lakes. The club promotes dragon boating for fitness, fun and social interaction within our community.
Dragon boating is a team sport that accommodates a broad range of fitness, skill levels and ages. Currently the majority of our members are retirees but our sport and club welcome anyone aged 10 up to dragon boat with us.
While members may choose to enjoy the social and low impact training sessions, a growing number opt to train at a higher level and race competitively. As a club, our B Grade race teams, Women’s 10’s and Open 10’s, train for 200m sprints and/or may combine with other clubs to compete in 20’s events at Dragon Boat SA race days. Opportunities also exist for individuals wanting to participate at national and international levels.
Our club also participates in events such as the Vogalonga Down Unda, Regional Masters Games and regattas.
Paddling and non-paddling members, partners and friends are very welcome to join us socially, be involved and to enjoy our activities, gatherings and good company off the water as well.
