Sunny Weekend Likely To Bring Out Shuswap Boaters

We've got a weekend full of sunshine on the way, and that will likely mean the start of boating season for many.

Sicamous' Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue Leader Fred Banham says safety and life jackets should be top of mind "You all know it's important to be there in the time of need, but if you have it locked away in the storage cupboard it's not going to do you any good at all, so ideally we'd like to have everybody wearing their PFT."

He says that RCMSAR staff will present for next weekend's Waterway Houseboats concert on Shuswap Lake "Our rescue boats will be out there in full force. Hopefully it's a great event with great music and everyone has a great time, but in the time of need we will be out there."

Salmon Arm could see a weekend high of 29 on Saturday.
