Adelaide Survivors Abreast

Dragon Boat Racing Club

Incorporating the Copper Coast

About Us


ASA members promote breast cancer awareness by training and fundraising to compete in dragon boat racing locally, intrastate, nationally and at times, internationally – the Windy Wellington Dragon Boat event (2011), Venice Vogalonga (2013 & 2017) and the Ord River Marathon (2014).

Our main objective to get the message out there that “MEN GET BREAST CANCER TOO”.

Breast cancer survivors are the “LIVING” side of breast cancer and our aim is to celebrate life and “seize the day”. We participate in the sport of dragon boat racing with a competitive spirit.  In doing so, we promote breast cancer awareness and the early detection of breast cancer, especially in younger men and women.

Each year Adelaide Survivors Abreast donates a percentage of funds raised throughout the year to a cancer-related organisation. Current financial support goes to the Otis Foundation.

ASA is also proud to have introduced dragon boating to the Copper Coast through a successful grant application in 2009 from the Office of Sport and Recreation. This has now opened up the doors for DBSA holding regattas on the Wallaroo Marina.

ASA is now supporting membership at Mannum where a team has been formed under the name of ASA Mannum Paddlesteamers.
