Our First Adaptive Crew

Canadian Outrigger was proud to have it’s first disabled crew participate in the Hilo World Sprints in 2004.

As of August 1st, 2008, Adaptive paddling is a full medal event for all future IVF World Sprints!

The International Va’a Federation has worked hard over the last 6 years, to include adaptive paddlers as full participants. Many countries brought adaptive teams to compete at Sacramento with great results.

Curently, CORA does not of resources to run an OC6 adaptive program.   Individuals are encouraged to register participate in the adaptive V1 (rudderless) event.    Paddlers wanting to develop paddling skills are encouraged to do so with Canoe Kayak Canada.

Congratulations Team Canada 2012

Time trials have come and gone and close to 280 paddlers attended to via for a seat on the 2012 World Sprints Team.  We are seeing our highest level of competitors, with several photo finish’s.

The standings are posted, and we are proud to announce our largest Canadian contingency of  250 paddlers.  This includes our largest junior contingency with kids from Pemberton, Penticton, Victoria, and Calgary attending.

Congratulations!  We look forward to August to cheer on our paddlers!
