Race Description: Double hull (v12) from FGPC’s south dock through Victoria’s Gorge Waterway under the Selkirk Trestle, Tillicum Bridge, Craigflower Bridge and into Portage Inlet and back to the start line, a 9.75km race. It’s a fun middle distance race that’s available to everyone. There are prizes to be won, food to be eaten, and victories to be defended.
Race slots are as follows:
- 9:30 am

- 3:30 pm (if needed)
Afternoon slots will preferentially be allotted to away teams.
Registration: team captains are required to check at least 30 minutes prior to their race starts to confirm their rosters and to verify waiver and CORA membership renewals.
Sterns meetings & post race meetings: mandatory steers’ meetings are held before 15 minutes before each race (see schedule); draw prizes and finish prizes will be distributed after each race.
Teams will be registered on a first come, first served basis. Deadline for registration is two days before the event; if registration fills before the deadline your crew will be waitlisted.
Please note: Individual Digital Waivers required for each paddler, along with CORA paddler memberships.
If necessary, COPY and forward the CORA link to your team mates: https://canadianoutrigger.ca/store/renew-your-membership/
In addition to completing this registration agreement, the Team Captain/Manager must ensure that all paddlers complete an online individual FGPC waiver and update their CORA memberships.
Please note: Any crew that does not provide a complete, waivered roster (last minute changes excluded) by two days before the event will be charged an additional 15% admin fee, payable on race day, to compete in this event.
