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.

Want to paddle?
We've had our 'have-a-go' days but we need just a few more paddlers ... If you want to be competitive - or you just want to be social - we have options for both! Please get in touch before mid -December if you'd like to join us for the 2018/19 season - email email@example.com.
2nd in Florence
We joined over 129 teams from 17 countries to race up the Arno River in Florence as part of the ICBCP Dragon Boat Festival - and came 2nd! Check out our international success.
Thanks to NZ Racing Board
Thanks to the New Zealand Racing Board for their recent 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.
