Dragon Boat events at Tin Can Bay

DRAGON BOAT RACING: The Cooloola Dragon Boat Club will hold its annual Sleepy Lagoon Hotel/Motel regatta and Wide Bay Series round three next weekend on Snapper Creek at the Tin Can Bay Yacht Club.

Bundaberg, Hervey Bay and Cooloola dragon boat clubs will compete next Saturday for round three of the Wide Bay Series.

Despite Bundaberg already winning the first two rounds and the series, the other clubs will still be looking to stop them from winning the 2015 series outright.

After the racing is complete the Cooloola club will hold a novelty race, the Diamond Dash for Cash for the second year sponsored by Sleepy Lagoon Hotel Tin Can Bay.

This race involves two boats up against the clock to be the fastest boat across the finish line after they have negotiated around two buoys on a Diamond shape course.

Cooloola Dragon Boat Club won the inaugural race last year and is hoping to hold the title again in 2015.

Sunday will see a busy day with many of the clubs from the south-east attending the Sleepy Lagoon Hotel/Motel Regatta which is the first Regatta for the 2015-16 season.
