Dragon Tao is a mixed team comprised of both new and seasoned paddlers. Our group loves to race when the opportunity is presented and we were proud to co-host the 11th Annual Shuswap Lake Dragon Boat Festival on June 21, 2014. We also enjoy paddling around the lake on a beautiful summer morning, taking in the many different varieties of birds and the incredible Shuswap scenery. There is a keen sense of comradery on the team and we meet after our paddle each morning at one of the local restaurants for coffee and chatter. If you are looking for coaching in current methods, a spirit of fun and competition and love to be up early in the morning, come and join us!
Paddle Times: Tuesday and Friday (on the water from 6:30 to 7:30 a.m.)

Pink Piston Paddlers
The Pink Piston Paddlers dragon boat team was formed in 2006. The team paddles from May to September on Shuswap Lake out of Salmon Arm and compete in two festivals each season. The team is comprised of breast cancer survivors and supporters from the Shuswap, Enderby, North Shuswap, Chase and surrounding areas. In 2007 the team competed in an International Breast Cancer Survivor regatta in Australia. The teams mandate is to promote breast cancer awareness, improve fitness and wellness and promote a safe breast cancer network. Their membership is open to breast cancer survivors of all ages and abilities. Here is quote from one member of the Pink Pistons: “Paddling helps me be the best I can be for myself and my team mates and it allows me to represent to other survivors that you can live a great life after breast cancer.”
