Canadian National Sprints & 2014 Rio Time Trial

The Finish Line

Come join us for the 5th Canadian National Outrigger sprint regatta.   Paddlers from BC, Alberta, and Ontario are hoping to attend.  Saturday  April 26 –  2014.  Pre-registration is necessary as we expect a full roster for the day.  We are offering (OC1) races as well as (OC6) – 500 and 1000 meter (1 turn).    Rio Time Trials will be V1 only on Sunday April 27th.  No OC1 time trials are required as crews are set as pre-determined only.   No National crew selection this time.

Your registration fee will allow you to race two age categories.  If you choose to race OC1 only the fee is reduced, but you are able to race your age category and down.  All proceeds for the day will be used to support Team Canada at future World Sprints.   Come out, have some fun and support Canadian outrigger sprints!

All participants must be CORA members.  A day fee of $10 can be paid the day of racing along with OC6 and OC1 registration payment.
