2013 National Championships

National Championships – Monday, 15 April – Saturday, 20 April 2013

Bulletin 2 – 2013 AusDBF Australian Dragon Boat Racing Championships – 23 February 2013


The 2013 National Championships will be held in Penrith, New South Wales from Monday 15 April to Saturday, 20 April 2013 (inclusived). Click here for specific information on race dates and categories.

As per agreement between all State associations and AusDBF, the format of the 2013 Nationals has been revised to accommodate the needs of paddlers, as best as possible.  It was recognised that many paddlers, and especially Premier and Junior paddlers, struggle to obtain time away from work and study to attend the Nationals, so the racing has been revised so that paddlers in the Masters and up age groups paddle on the first two days of the Nationals, then the State vs State racing is held mid-week, followed by Premier and Junior racing.  This allows paddlers to attend for a shorter time-period as may be necessary, but if paddlers wish to stay longer and participate in the event atmosphere there are expected to be opportunities for them to volunteer, if desired, and assist with the operation of a National event.

Logistical issues with deconstruction of the regatta centre impeded Sunday being used for racing.

A steering committee is being set up between the States and AusDBF to further consider the format of the Nationals in future years.  Although the 2013 Nationals will incorporate some changes, it is expected that more changes will still be required to adapt and accommodate the increased participation at the championships.
