Sundays - May 13th, June 10th, July 22nd, August 19th, September 16th, October 14th

Start time is 9.30am and races will be at either Long Beach Simon's Town or Seaforth Beach - the location will be notified in an email closer to the race date, and on this blog.

This year the single kayak races will be categorised by kayak size which will even the playing (paddling?) field and make it more competitive for those in less speedy craft.
A Category: All kayaks above 4.8m and below 22kg in weight - e.g. Epic 18 and 16ft, Skua, Swift.
B Category: Kayaks between 4m and 5.5m and above 22kg - eg Contour 480 and 450, Malachite, Pelican, Napali, Solo.
C Category: Kayaks below 4m - e.g. Acadia 370.
Doubles: No gender or boat type differentiation

Prizes will be awarded at the end of the season to the winners and runners-up in each category as well as for the most improved paddler. Best 4 results of the 6 races is the likely format.

As usual there will be long and short courses and for those who have only recently taken up the sport may we remind you that our races are more about the fun and camaraderie of paddling rather than the winning. The Olympic spirit of taking part is the most important thing. A separate email will be sent prior to the race with more details concerning rules, registration and courses.
