A big race day at Agnes with the Dragons to breathe fire

DRAGON BOATS: The crew of the 1770 Dragons will celebrate.

And that's regardless of what happens in the final round of the Wide Bay Regatta today at Agnes Water.

The 10-race program starts at 10.30am with two boats to race at a time.

1770 Dragon Boat Club president Angie Draheim said her team will be the hunted.

"The other teams are really keen to get us, but the weather looks like being picture perfect,” she said.

Teams from Hervey Bay, Bundaberg and Cooloola will also race.
