CYL Dragon Boat Club Australia is a Sydney based dragon boat racing club. Our dragon boat club trains near Blackwattle Bay, near the Sydney Fish Markets. We paddle with fury & fun.
The Chinese Youth League of Australia Inc is a non-profit community organisation based in Sydney, Australia. One of its aims is to bring Chinese Culture to the wider Australian Community, and Dragon Boating is one activity which it organises to do this. Dragon Boating provides a unique sporting experience which has a cultural history going back 2000 years. It is a team sport that both men and women can participate in and compete literally side by side.
CYL is a dragon boat team dedicated to enriching the lives of our members and the development of the sport of dragon boating.
The CYL Dragon Boat team has been competing since the first dragon boat races in Sydney back in 1984. During this time, the crews have developed, grown, chopped, changed and morphed into many different forms. We currently have a fantastic bunch of paddlers who like to be competitive, but party pretty hard when we're not on the water!
So if you're thinking about giving dragon boating a try, then just take the plunge and sign up for an Intro to Paddling Course! It's a great way to get fit and make new friends. Many of our paddlers help out with the other community activities run by CYL, so c'mon out and try out dragonboat!
