We are the Pendragons Abreast at Penrith. Our aim is to always support each other while maintaining a public profile that promotes breast cancer awareness and always promoting the search for a cure.
Dragons Abreast Penrith, also known as Pendragons Abreast, was formed in 2004 and has been a member of our national charity Dragons Abreast Australia since then. We are a cancer support group within Pendragons Dragon Boat Club. In addition, there are special events each year where we paddle in survivor races and can now be joined by our own supporters as well, including the social and community days at Darling Harbour during Chinese New Year.
Pendragons Abreast currently have 26 members, 22 survivors and 4 supporters. We are always looking for new members to come and join us!! So if you’d like to try something different, please give us a call.
Our contacts are Janette Fry – Chairperson: 0411703449

We have members from the Blue Mountains, Penrith and the surrounding areas and would be more than happy to welcome new members.
We have several accredited sweeps, and two coaches, and we also have the benefit of experienced coaches from our sports crew Pendragons, to ensure that we use the correct technique to become fit and healthy for the seasons competition. This usually begins at Dobroyd Point in August.
Opportunities are always available for everyone to learn to sweep or coach.
We practice and train at the Sydney International Regatta Centre in Penrith. This Olympic class venue provides us with showers, toilets and parking. Few clubs have the opportunity to train at a venue of this calibre and the Pendragons Abreast/Pendragons are the envy of others.
Alternatively, we now have a boat at the Nepean River for those times that we can’t get on the water at the Regatta Centre.
