We have been paddling since February 2008 and are based at the North Esk Rowing Club opposite the Seaport. We enjoy all the facilities at the club, including excellent gym equipment and a restaurant and bar. From this situation we can easily access the Cataract Gorge, the upper reaches of the Tamar River and the lower reaches of the North Esk River. We are also able to launch the ‘Tamar Tittilator’ from various ramps along the Tamar, especially at George Town, Hillwood and Gravelly Beach, where we receive terrific support from the locals

The club is named ‘DANTI’ (Dragons Abreast Northern Tas Inc.) We hold meetings at the rowing club on the second Tuesday of each month, after paddling. Meetings are open to all members.

Training Times

Training is held every Tuesday and Thursday evening night during the summer months, 5pm for a 5.30 start, at the North Esk Rowing Club Rooms, Lindsay Street. In winter months on these evenings the Club does fitness training at the Club Rooms.

On Saturdays we have a group paddle 8:30 am to be on the water at 9:00 am.
DAA members are most welcome to join us if they are visiting Launceston
