Rainbow Dragson was one of the few teams that paddled as a club. Many larger teams were made up of composite paddlers from across Australia. Tasmania turned on mild weather and the games themselves were extremely well run.
According to organisers, ‘Small groups travelled around this beautiful island before the racing began. Some went swimming, some went climbing and bush walking. Others found flowers, ventured into caves, saw some very unusual art work and went on exhilarating boat rides. Most of us ate cheese, oysters, mussels and scallops and sampled the local wine’
