Bowen Island


Hosted by False Creek Racing Canoe Club, this race starts and finishes in Snug Cove. About half way around Bowen Island, Tunstall bay, will be used as a beach change out point. A buoy will be place outside the bay. Padders are to organize rides to and from Tunstall bay. The race has 2 legs, a 15km leg and a 18km leg. The direction of the race will be made in the morning based on the wind to try to get the best surfing. The Snug Cove shelters on Bowen Island will be used to rig and un-rig canoes, put them in and take them out of the water. The after dinner will be at the park.
