Anyone who has ever wanted to paddle with purpose would do well to head down to the North Esk Rowing Club next Tuesday for North Esk Dragon Boat Club’s Movember Come and Try event.

Prospective paddlers aged 12 and over are invited to try the expanding team sport and donate to an important initiative.

Formed in 2012, the North Esk Dragon Boat Club is home to swamp dragon team, as well as Dragons Abreast Northern Tasmania, which recently marked its 10th anniversary within the community.

The club is coming off a spirited performance in last month’s Masters Games at Lake Barrington, where they joined more than 400 competitors from around the country.  Next Tuesday will mark the first time they have held the event to coincide with Movember, which is used raise awareness of men’s health issues.

The Come and Try session will be held from 5pm at the North Esk Rowing Club.
