Abreast of Life Dragon Boat Team for Central Vancouver Island was founded in 1998 by a group of women who were all breast cancer survivors. Fundraising and community support enabled us to purchase a secondhand dragon boat which was one of the original False Creek "six sixteen" boats made in Vancouver.


The team is made up of paddlers from Nanaimo, Nanoose, Parksville, Qualicum, Errington, Whiskey Creek and Qualicum north.


Abreast of Life practices in the beautiful protected waters of Nanoose Bay.
