Is the Dueling Hearts Relay still on? If so how does one register for it?

I note Feb 12, 2018 is a Monday, is this correct?

Hi Ron and Pam,

yes, the race is still on and the date is February 12th, which is a Monday indeed. It is Family Day so most people will not have to work that day and we can avoid any crowding of our dock since no Dragonboat team will have practice. Registration will open in the next few days

Dueling Hearts Race – Monday, February 12, 2018 @ 10:00am

For details and registration about this race, see:

The race course will be 4.5 km loops in False Creek starting and finishing at the Alder Bay dock (Granville Island).
There’s a short course (2 loops) and a long course (4 loops).
Racers will be started in heats with 30 sec interval starts. It will be based on your team’s predicted 5km time. Once you come back into Alder Bay, we will have a buoy set up which marks the “Change Zone”. So should the dock be full, paddlers will need to wait there before being allowed to change. Your time will be paused until you can continue. At the end, results will be based on cumulative time overall.
