Join the Nelson Paddling Club on Monday for an all-ages family friendly event. Each participant will be provided with a large piece of cardboard, a roll of duct tape, an X-Acto knife and lots of decorations. Choose to build your own boat or a team boat with family, friends or business colleagues.
Last year’s entries included a submarine, a train, a sparkly dragon boat and many other great vessels! This year, there will also be a race dedicated to any businesses that choose to enter a boat. The winner of that race will be crowned the Corporate King or Queen.
Early registration has already begun online (https://nelsonpaddlingclub.sportical.com). Registration on race day begins at 1:30 p.m. at Lakeside Park beside the Rowing Pavilion. Boat construction will begin at 2 p.m. and participants will have one hour to complete their boat.
At 3:15 p.m. the boats will be raced in three categories; youth, adult, and corporate. Awards will be presented immediately following the last race. Up for grabs is the Kootenay Crown (fastest paddler), the Titanic (sinking with style), Best Decorations, Best Teamwork, Corporate King or Queen and many more! Cost will be $15 per person and $45 for a family. Spectators welcome!
