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 but crews can change out here or do the full race as iron. 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.

With VOS chase-down cancelled, 6 FCRCC Kupuna men looking
to race Around Bowen Is. on the 27th. Any unattached OC6 crew looking for a partner? Have not arranged a boat yet either. We know it’s late timing but just asking.

Just an update,

The race is on! (Not too late to register)

The cost is $30 per paddler plus CORA. Banh mi and Samosas will be the stars of after race meal. Please bring your own plates, cups and cutlery as FCRCC is trying to minimize waste.
