Thanks and congrats to Triport dragonboaters

Kudos to the teams and volunteers who make dragon boating on the North Island possible.

Dear editor,

First and foremost, I would like to thank all of members who show up to paddle. It goes without saying our club wouldn’t be where it is today if it wasn’t for your tireless dedication. From bailing the boats to representing our club at regattas, you show we are a force to be reckoned with. With the steady hand of our helms we practice and race in all sorts of weather; you make us feel safe and steer us true.

The GD’s (Gorging Dragons) have played a huge role in bringing us valuable information; our crews and coaches forever grateful. To the coaches, thank you for sharing your knowledge and encouraging your crews to race with other crews as well. It shows others the true spirit of the sport.

To the executive past, and present, thank you for meeting and addressing the clubs needs.

For all those who make up the regatta committee we appreciate what it takes to put it together and the opportunity to show our North Island off to other communities.

To all of the artists over the past five years we are truly grateful — the paddles are amazing keepsakes.

We have so many people in all of the communities who have either made donations, let us use their equipment, or volunteered their time so we can have what we have. Thank you to them.

Last but not least I would like to say thank you to the six very special and determined women who have a goal and are doing all they can to go to the Worlds. You have come from such a tiny club and are representing the North Island. We are so very proud of you.

Cora Nelson
