Important Information

Important to Remember

Registration fee and sponsorship include the boat, paddles, personal floatation device (PFD), and a steersperson/coach. Each team will have a designated area to “hang out” between races. It is suggested that teams bring folding chairs and pop-up tents (For an extra fee tents, chairs, and tables can be rented). Each team will have a practice/safety session during the week before the race.

Practice Schedule

All teams are required to practice at least once prior to race day. To book a practice time, send an email to stating team name & preferred day/time. Practice times may be requested/booked after online registration has been submitted. (The earlier online registration is submitted, the better the chance of booking requested practice time.) If your level of sponsorship comes with a second practice, the second practice must occur prior to 5:00 p.m. Because of limited practice time, it is important that your team show up approximately 15 minutes prior to practice time.
