NANAIMO – Dragon boaters supplement training with outrigger kayak.

Jacinthe Brouard, left, and Holly Wilie get in a practice paddle aboard an outrigger kayak in Nanaimo Harbour Monday. The women are dragon boaters who supplement their training with time on the water in the kayak.

Both women are training for the Club Crew World Championships in Italy in September. Wilie is also training for the World Nations Championships, which will be hosted in Welland, Ont., in August.
