New CORA Website

August 9, 2019 · 1 comment

After being on the CORA Board’s wish list for the past several years, the Board is pleased to announce that a new CORA website will replace the old website as of August 15, 2019. The URL for the new website will be canadianoutrigger.ca rather than canadianoutrigger.com, with visits to the old website redirected to the new website as of that date.

The new website has come to fruition through the hard work and dedication of CORA Communications Officers, Erik Ages and Paul Pilon, together with contributions from Erik’s team at Fairway Gorge Paddling Club, much of it during the busy race season.

The new website presents a more modern user interface, with webpage design that is more compatible with access from mobile devices, including larger fonts and simpler layouts. We trust it will be a principal resource to outrigger paddlers throughout Canada regarding membership, racing and community outreach.

The new message board has improved functionality, including sharing on social media and allowing members to directly contact each other in response to posts. However, with that improved functionality comes the need for tighter security, so the new message board will require you to log in with a username and password. These requirements are also aimed at preventing the spam attacks experienced by the old website.

As CORA is largely run by volunteers who have limited time and resources, we have endeavoured to copy most of the information on the old website to the new website, including race results and messages on the old message board, but you may find that old message board posts may be missing. If an active message post is missing from the new message board, we invite you to log in to the new system and repost the message.

If you discover any glitches on the new website or missing information or have other comments, please send us an e-mail through the new website’s “Contact CORA” webpage.

We hope that you will be as pleased as we are with the new website.

The CORA Board
