DBQ State Championships, Kawana - 7th & 8th March, 2020
Well what a way to celebrate International Women’s Day. Three gold, two bronze and the Janelle Gamble trophy. Thanks Coach Di who did an awesome job with the assistance of Sue VR and all paddlers, sweeps and drummers who gave it their all over the two days. Thanks also to those who came and supported their team whether they were able to be on the water or not and to those who were there with us in spirit and who sent messages of support to us all. It made all the difference and we carried you with us in our hearts all the way.
2019 Ord River Marathon, Kununurra WA - 9th June, 2019
“ I have no words for today.... saying it was overwhelming, incredible, amazing just doesn’t do it
justice. Loved every second and was so blessed to share the boat with bloody legends. Now to eat,
drink and be merry. I didn’t have my phone on the Ord so will probs bore you to tears as the other
pics come in. Life is such a gift, take every opportunity to explore this world and step outside your
comfort zone. You just never know where the magic is hiding - Deb Heslin
12 Members Completed the gruelling 55km paddle from Lake Argyle to Kununurra.
High Tea Fundraising Event,
Royal Queenland Yacht Squadron 9th May, 2019
What a fantastic day was had by all at the MBT High Tea yesterday. Fantastic effort by Meredith and her band of merry helpers and all attendees from within the club and from outside who dug deep into their hearts and their pockets to support our major fundraiser of the year. It was an Absolutely Fab day !
AusDBF Nationals, Weston Park, Canberra - 21st & 22nd April, 2019
26 Members headed down to Canberra for the 2019 AusDBF Nationals. Racing was over 500m & 200m in Small boats.
We came home with some wonderful memories and two Silver Medals.
Corina was presented with an award to commemorate her selection as the DAA Flag Bearer in the 2018 Nationals. The award was extra special as she could share it with both her Mother and Grandmother who were there to cheer the MBT teams on.
NZDBA Nationals, Lake Karapiro New Zealand - 5th & 6th April, 2019
24 MBT Members and 3 Supporters headed across the Tasman to join our New Zealand Sisters at their National Championships. This was the first time in many years that MBT had made this journey. On the first morning it was a very cool 5 deg and the Lake was covered in fog - needless to say racing was postponed until the fog lifted.
The welcome given to us by all of our Kiwi counterparts was absolutely amazing, from the rousing warm ups of dancing and singing, to the powerful and emotional Haka performed at the end of the Flowers on the Water ceremony.
This was one trip that touched the hearts of all that attended and we can't wait to join our Kiwi Sisters at this venue for the IBCPC festival in 2022.
DBQ State Championships, Kawana - 23rd & 24th March, 2019
Day 1 of States and a great time was had by all. 1st, 4th and 5th in the BCS final and winner of the Janelle Gamble trophy. Certainly worth celebrating with a team dinner.
What an amazing team of women. Day 2 of states and MBT takes out 1st and 3rd in the BCS final. What an awesome effort by everyone whether they were in the boat or cheering from the sidelines . You are all winners each and every one of you 🥇 🥇 🥉
Te Waka Regatta, Kawana - 10th March 2019
A fun day was had by all who attended the Te Waka regatta. It was a hot one both on and off the water with MBT competing in the mixed 20’s and fielding two teams in the BCS category. Fantastic performances by all and another trophy for the cabinet. Next stop states and nationals. Bring it on !!

Burleigh Regatta, Varsity Lakes - 18th November, 2018
This is always a great regatta, with the highlight being the "round the islands" race to finish off the day.
We started first and were only chased down by one crew on the home straight. A fantastic effort when we were up against all sports crews and most of them had all male crews.
