The Dragon Slayers, Habersham’s community based DragonBoat Beaufort team comprised of 13 men and 12 women are all passionately dedicated to help provide financial and logistical support to Beaufort County residents during their battle against this insidious disease called cancer.

See you on the 22nd and bring your A game.

Welcome to my team page! Team Reel Nauti began in 2018 in support of its founding member, organizer and paddler, Michelle Fraser. Michelle is a long-time Beaufort County resident and breast cancer survivor.
This year, Team Reel Nauti would like to raise its paddles in honor of former teammate and friend Lt. Col. Matthew Stover. Matt, who lost his hard-fought battle with cancer in February 2019, was a Marine Corps officer and naval aviator. Before becoming the current Executive Officer of MCAS Beaufort, he flew CH-46s and KC-130s culminating with serving as the Commanding Officer of Marine Aerial Refueler Transport Squadron 152.
Team Reel Nauti is dedicated to paddling hard and fighting harder against cancer. Paddles Up!
The Beaufort Leadership Class of 2018 including Alumni Members as well as friends and family have joined together to honor our friend and loved one Lt. Col Matthew Stover. On the morning of February 13th, 2019 Matt (aka Nature Boy) bravely succumbed to his battle with Cancer. Matt was an amazing Husband, Father, Son, Brother & Friend and consistently gave unselfishly to others. He defended his country with honor and integrity and was proud to call himself a US Marine. With heavy hearts we will be paddling without Matt this year but we will feel his breath in every breeze.
St. Peter’s Catholic Church is in our second year of involvement with Dragonboat Beaufort, and is proud to be reaching out to the community as A Light for Beaufort in sharing the message of Christ’s love.

St. Peter’s serves the community by serving others with financial assistance or hands on service for those in need and sharing the faith as we all purposely grow in our relationship with Jesus Christ. We are honored to be a part of helping those who have survived cancer and who may be faced with this diagnosis in the future.
