It’ll be poetry in motion on the ocean.
The Poetry in M’Ocean dragon boat team is looking forward to being part of the Ladysmith Heritage Boat Festival on Saturday, May 25.
The team will be conducting rides into the harbour from the Maritime Centre dock at 11 a.m. and noon. If there’s enough interest, another opportunity will be offered at 1 p.m.
“The rides are free but we do have a donation box that we hope to fill and donate to breast cancer awareness,” noted team member Lesley Lambert. “We are doing this in celebration of our 10th year paddling.”
Team members are from Chemainus, Ladysmith and surrounding areas.
“Come on down and try your hand in the dragon boat, it’s lots of fun,” enthused Lambert.
The actual paddling starts at 2 p.m. with the ladies first, then the men and then both together. Afternoon tea will be served afterwards.
