NEWCASTLE’S local dragon boat club the Dragonhunters have set off for Shanghai, China.
Last year the crew placed sixth at the annual Shanghai dragonboat tournament and are aiming to improve on that this year.
Three weeks ago some of these same team members returned from competing in a regatta in Long Beach, California where they took out a silver medal in the mixed team racing.
The Dragonhunters are going from strength to strength – as they showed in the warm-up event for the start of the NSW race season held earlier this month in Sydney.
They placed second in the Grand Master Women division, second in the Master Mixed division, third in the Premier Women division, third in the Master Women division and third in the Grand Master Open.
