The Alberni Valley’s West Coast Dragon Boat Society will be hosting a regatta this weekend.
The dragon boaters hold two events annually—a ladies regatta in June, followed by a mixed regatta in the fall.
The ladies regatta takes place at Sproat Lake Provincial Park this Sunday, June 9 starting at 8:30 a.m. and wrapping up around 3 p.m. There are 20 teams expected to compete, including the local Sproatness Dragons, who recently won silver medals at a race in Victoria.
Spectators are welcome at the event on Sunday.
