Race Weekend - Canoe Club Challenge & Boatercross Race

  • 13 Aug 2011
  • 10:00 AM
  • Forest Service Putin- 10am & Nantahala Outdoor Center (between the bridges) in the afternoon

Registration

  • Last year we dominated the field and won the Club Challege and a new Jackson Villian which we raffled off at the Christmas Party. After the second race the club is in second place; we have a chance to pull ahead but only with your help!

    This is a great event where you can practice your river skills. It is beginner friendly!! Come out and support the Club. All types of boats are welcome...kayaks, canoes, C-1s (just no composite race boats).

    We need timers and sherpas as well!!!

Registration is closed
