DAA Members Tackle the Ord! Posted on: 18 June 2019

Intrepid DAA members from all over Australia have made their way to Kununurra, Western Australia, to take part in the 55km Ord River Dragon Boat Marathon.

The paddlers enjoyed a full day’s paddling down the mighty Ord, with plenty of time to take in the amazing scenery. 

Each boat had 14 paddlers and a sweep who regularly trained for the gruelling event. Several of the boats were made up of members from all over the country – doing what DAA does best – including and participating!

Paddlers enjoyed regular opportunities to take a rest from paddling,stretch and take some happy snaps. 

The marathon was not a race to be won, but rather a day to remember!

A big thank you to the Kununurra Dragon Boat Club and Glenn Taylor from FitEvents for their hospitality!
