Dragon boat races this week

The Penticton Dragon Boat Festival Society is gearing up to host the Okanagan Super Sprints this weekend on Skaha Lake.

The 250 metre sprints are half the distance of September’s Dragon Boat Festival and leave little room for error during competition.

“With 7 teams racing in Friday's third annual seniors (55+) challenge, and 16 teams racing this Saturday, spectators can expect to see an intense battle on the water,” a news release states.

Racing starts at 9 a.m. on both days, ending just after noon.

The event is a fundraiser for Muscular Dystrophy Canada. The Festival has raised nearly $30,000 to date for the charity.

The free event is open to all spectators.
