2019 is River Spirit’s sixteenth anniversary and raising the public’s awareness of breast cancer remains our top goal. We encourage athletic excellence amongst our members through paddling and participating in dragon boat races. From early Spring until Fall we practice two or three times a week from the Tyee dock in early spring, and freshwater marina summer onward in Campbell River. We compete in all the major dragon boat events on Vancouver Island. We paddle seriously, but we do our best to keep it all good fun. Above all else, we believe in keeping a spirit of camaraderie and solidarity alive between our paddlers.
