Vernon’s Buoyant Buddies dragon boat team is ready to get back on the water.
The club will soon resume practices on Swan Lake and they are looking for enthusiastic new paddlers who enjoy an active lifestyle to join the team.
“We practice on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6 p.m. and will alternate between dryland training and being on the water,” said team spokesperson Gillian Wells.

The Buoyant Buddies have competed internationally at an event in Italy, and also served as Vernon Winter Carnival ambassadors at a November dragon boat event in Sarasota, Fla.
They’ve also been among the local clubs competing at the annual Dragon Boat Festival which has raised money for breast cancer treatment at Vernon Jubilee Hospital.
