V1 (solo) boat sharing forum for CORA Sprint Nationals

For CORA sprint participants who want to register for the V1 (solo rudderless) races over the 30 April to 1 May weekend, please ensure that you secure a V1 boat to race in. CORA is not supplying boats for solo sprint heats. Note that mixed crew paddlers cannot race in V1 over the sprint weekend. However, men and women in gender crews can race in V1 and can share V1 boats providing they share across genders. These restrictions are required to ensure fast and efficient race management and are not negotiable. To assist qualified paddlers who need to find a V1 or have one to share, CORA has created a forum to connect paddlers with and without V1s to arrange sharing.

Just in time for sprint season, here’s a great chance for Canadian paddlers to meet championship paddler and international paddling coach Vesna Radonich as she joins Canadian hosts (CORA’s board of directors) for a 90-minute masterclass on sprint racing.

Vesna will discuss her passion for sprint racing, and outline the technical, tactical and training approaches to helping outrigger paddlers get to the start-line with the preparation they need to finish with personal bests.

Why hone up on sprints? Because there are some great races coming up, including FGPC’s “Kan-U-Hakit” 1500m 2x-buoy-turn OC6 sprints (Sunday 6 March) and CORA’s Sprint Nationals (including crew and solo competitors) scheduled for Burnaby Lake over the weekend of 30 April & 1 May. Crews and solo athletes will benefit from Vesna’s training tips and tactical expertise specific to sprint performance.

PLEASE JOIN the CORA board and guest presenter Vesna on Saturday 26 February at 4pm Pacific for this 2nd in CORA’s townhall series.
