The boat is 43 feet long and holds up to 20 paddlers at a time. We have members who train hard or just paddle socially, and at Melbourne Flames Dragon Boat Club this mix of competitiveness is welcomed. Be warned though - it’s addictive!!
Social paddle and training sessions are run year round on Sundays, 9am.
Additional training during spring and summer months are held on Tuesdays, 6pm.
The Melbourne Flames Club operates from a boat shed (shed 2) at the end of North Wharf Road, Docklands.
