Dragon boats add athletic element to Nautical Days
As a sporty addition to Nautical Days, the annual Victor Simonson Dragon Boat Races made a splash in Comox Marina on August 3rd. This year we added a little something new to the mix with a Tiller Challenge. Three buoys, three teams, lots of cheering, lots of competition and a little splash of new!

A special thank you to Peter Williams and Sonja Anderson of Prevailing Wins and Colleen Holden of Dragon Flies for helping to organize this event with, “the new kid on the block.” Thank you to the members of the Head Injury Society, and many volunteers from the Dragon Flies team. Nick Hindle, we may not understand your accent, but you’re a darn good timer! Comox Recreation would like to thank everyone for participating in this year’s event and continually making it better for our community spirit.
