Raising money and making friends

Clarence Coast Dragon (CCD) boat club members recently participated in the Grafton Rowing Club ‘Rowathon’ 2021, on the Clarence River at Grafton. The event raised much needed funds for Westpac Helicopter Rescue Service.

CCD is registered with DBNSW and compete at club and state regattas. CCD trains twice weekly, promoting health and fitness through paddling. The club supports and assists with community sporting activities and charitable events.

On the day, a crew from Yamba (CCD), Grafton and Coffs Harbour combined for the event. The cameraderie generated from friendships old and new coupled with a contribution to Westpac Helicopter Rescue Service was oarsome.
