CORA has now posted the Canadian 2022 OC Sprints Championships Results from 59 races over the course of the Apr-30 / May-1 weekend, sliced / diced / sorted in every way possible – even by Age Division for V1 and OC6 events!
CORA wishes to express a huge round of gratitude to all of the organizations that collaborated to bring OC Sprints Racing back to Burnaby Lake and made for a very successful event that involved 5 months of planning:
- First and foremost, CORA recognizes the False Creek Racing Canoe Club volunteers who were there for many days loading / unloading / weighing / weighting / rigging launching 7 Bradley Lightning OC6s, handling registration / marshalling, lining-up / starting races, and so much more
- Kamini Jain for countless hours reworking the race schedule given the ever-changing composition of registrations and for providing impeccable leadership as Race Director
- G2G for capturing and posting and publishing accurate / timely race results
- Fairway Gorge for providing / managing the Event Shopping Cart and skillfully dealing with last-minute registrations / cancellations
- Burnaby Lake Rowing Club for stick-handling the Fortis Public Relations team to ensure this event was actually able to happen, as well setting the race course line buoys far in advance, and providing many safety boats, and ensuring the Officiating Platform was race-ready
- The CORA clubs who made their Bradley Lightning OC6s available for this event
- The V1 paddlers who graciously shared their boats so that other paddlers could compete in the V1 event
- All of the attendees who contributed to the event running ahead of schedule by being in the marshalling area, on the docks, and at the start line in a timely manner
- And lastly, the dozen CORA Board Members who each selflessly contributed hundreds upon hundreds of hours over the course of 5 months since the November 2021 AGM to guarantee the Pavilion, the parking lots, the race course, the safety boats, the OC6s, the trailering, the event shopping cart, the coffee / food vendors, the merchandise vendors, the medals, the award ceremonies, the draw prizes, and the commemorative jerseys would be in place for this 2-day event.
Please note that online sales for the Oddball Workshop Canadian 2022 OC Sprints Championships commemorative jerseys closed as of 4-May-2022 11:59PM.
