Breast Friends Paddling for Life
We are an enthusiastic group of breast cancer survivors who thrive on the positive outcome that being involved in a dragon boating team provides. As well as gaining support within the team, we hope to show other women that there is a positive outcome from such a challenging journey.

Thanks to NZ Racing Board
Thanks to the New Zealand Racing Board for their grant of $4,500 so we could get new life jackets. The team now has new black full-body lifejackets for training, and waist-worn ones for racing. Thanks for keeping us safe!
Come and have a go!
So ... you're wondering what it's all about? Come and find out about dragon boating at one of our 'have-a-go' days. We have a couple of these every year in September/October. No strings attached - just come out on the water with us and see if you like it.
This year we are holding them 9am-11am Sunday 23 September and 7 October, and there will be a morning tea to enjoy after your hard work on the water.
You need to let us know that you're coming though - so we can get in touch if the weather's bad and we need to cancel (and so we know how many scones to make). So contact us to let us know you'd like to have a go!
Success in Florence!
