The amalgamation of Sapphire Water Dragona and Zen Dragon Boat Club took place on 2 December 2015 resulting in the formation of MERIMBULA WATER DRAGONS.
Paddling sessions are conducted at Top Lake, Merimbula and cater for both serious and social paddlers.
This exciting sport has become popular in the local area and over the years both clubs have competed at a number of regattas in regional NSW, ACT and other Capital cities. In 2015 five members from across both clubs qualified to compete at the World Dragon Boat Championships in Welland, Canada.
New paddlers are always welcome, we welcome everyone from 12 years of age onwards and of any fitness level.
Check our Training and Events page for a list of regattas. A full list can be obtained from the DBNSW website

In December 2004 Sapphire Water Dragons Abreast (SWDA) was formed by Jenny Kimber and Alice Wood, both breast cancer survivors.
With the finalisation of the amalgamation SWDA will nw be knows as MERIMBULA WATER DRAGONS ABREAST (MWDA).
We paddle to demonstrate there is quality of life despite a breast cancer diagnosis.
By being part of the team we help each other regain a sense of wellness, self-confidence and control in our lives.
Our group not only has a number of survivors, it also has a number of supporters.
