Get on board the Busting With Life dragon boat

Now is a great time to give dragon boating a go at the start of the new season.

The Busting with Life Dragon Boat Team, based in Auckland, is on the look-out for new members.

They can promise you increased fitness, a boat load of instant team-mates, a few laughs along the way and some competitive racing. No experience is required - it doesn’t matter if you’ve never picked up a paddle before.

They are New Zealand’s first breast cancer survivors dragon boat team and have been around for 22 years. Their team is open to all ages and currently team members range from women in their 30s through to their 60s, all sharing the breast cancer journey. Training takes place between Westhaven and Lake Pupuke and they compete regionally, nationally and internationally. The season runs from October through to April each year.

Come along to a Give It A Go session in Auckland on 3 and 10 October or 7 November by registering here and email them at or call Linda on 0274 740 216.
