Maiden's Voyage
A boat has been made available by Dragon Boats South Australia (DBSA) for use at Mannum.

Rev John Thompson, who has had experience with Dragon Boats in Adelaide, put his hand up when he found that Dragon Boats SA was willing to make craft available to country towns.

John picked the current boat up from Adelaide on Monday 11th January on a trailer loaned for the day by Dragon Boats SA. It is a training craft and a 'competition' boat will also become available at the end of March. A trolley has now been made to bring the boat out of the water.

There are over twenty interested participants, both young and old and female and male, most of whom have taken the 'fitness and enjoyment' angle rather than the 'competition' one. However, as Fr John has said, "there is room for both".

Currently, John Thompson is our only registered 'sweep' and the boat cannot be used without his supervision. However, once others come forward to train and register it will take the pressure off him and free up the use of the boat.
