2012 Howe Sound Iron has come and gone. With a quick turn around from Calgary World Sprints, 5 Hawaiian, and 1 Ozzie team were able to join in the event and share our Canadian ohana, including Nappy Napoleon and Kimokeo. To keep the momentum going, we will see our paddlers travelling to the US for Pacific North West Outrigger Change race in Seattle, Queen Lili’uokalani in Kona and Catalina Crossing in Newport.
Our next CORA race will be “Length of the Lake”. September 15, 2012 for a one-of-a-kind Ultra-Paddling on scenic Okanagan Lake!
The race starts at Kin Beach in Vernon at 7:00 AM (6 AM for early starters) and ends 100 kilometres later on Okanagan Beach in Penticton. In between are four on-shore aid station/check points where paddlers and their support crews will find water, washrooms, and parking.
Race registration includes an after-race dinner and a limited-edition technical shirt. Race categories with three or more entries by the early registration deadline (midnight Wednesday, August 29, 2012) are considered official and are eligible for prizes. They need your shirt size by the above date to have the correct size for each person. If you do not specify size we will choose for you! Unofficial, including “build-your-own” categories are welcome and are eligible for bragging rights and a place in the Length of the Lake Ultra-paddle history books.
