Club Achievements

The 2017/18 season was the best season in the history of CYSM Sea Dragons. We prepared ourselves both physically and mentally before the season even began and stuck to our vision, to keep performing at our best.

We had 3 goals at the start of the season:

  1. Grow the team to 60-members strong;
  2. Be one of the top 2 teams in Victoria;
  3. We will rise to the finals in the 2018 Australian Championships.

By the end of the 2018 season, we can proudly say that we achieved 2 of our goals!

We have come 2nd and even 1st in races at the Victorian State regattas and we moved one step closer in every single race category since last year’s Australian Championships! Furthermore, we came 2nd in the Premier Open 20s 200m small boat race, 3rd in the Premier Open 10s 500m small boat race, 3rd in the Premier Open 10s 2km sweeps race and 4th in the Premier Mixed 10s 200m small boat race!

Can you believe that 10 of the 12 paddlers (including reserves) were the same people who paddled 3 years ago when we were just beginning the transition to a competitive club? It just goes to show how much a club and its people can change with the right mindset and will to improve. We also had an incredible 21 paddlers in the Victorian State Team at various levels.

The 2017/18 season has been the culmination of 3 seasons of hard work, dedication, determination and sheer perseverance and we have finally been awarded for our efforts.
