THE FERRIES ARE 8:30AM FROM HORSESHOE OR 7:45AM FROM TSWWASSEN for a 11am start on Saturday.
This event is open to ALL members who have not attended a National Championship this year or who are a bona fide master (or if you did attend Nationals you could race in the 'other' discipline)
We will be offering:
• U130 lbs races in the banana boats
• C2 and C4 events in the Clipper canoes
• A relay and triathalon
• War Canoe
• Lots of fun
Team Size – 4 people/team (mixed, male, or female)
Every member of the team completes each of the 3 events together and don’t move on until everyone has finished the previous event.
Final time is established once all members of the team are across the finish line. (Teams can use any style of canoe/kayak for the paddling discipline).
Battle of the Big Boats:
Clubs may create a team of 10 people (where a club doesn’t have sufficient, we will work to provide extras to fill a team)
Each team will then draw a number from a hat to determine the boat that they will be racing in the Battle of the Big Boats event.
For example: Victoria draws a number 4, so they will race in the War Canoe. Nanaimo draws a two, so they will join False Creek (who also drew a two) in the dragon boat. Ridge draws a number one to race in the voyageur and number 3 gets selected by Burnaby, so they will race in the outrigger and their choice of either K4 or C4.
#1 – Voyageur – 1-3 Teams will be chosen for these canoes (based on teams entered)
#2 – Dragon Boat – 2 teams will be used to fill this boat
#3 – Outrigger/ K4 or C4 – 1 Team will be split up into the OC6 and choice of K4 or C4.
#4 – War Canoe – 1 Team
