Endurance Championship 2021

Date: Jul 1 to Sep 6
Time: 12 hour window

Course details: You have one 12-hour window to log as many kilometres as you can (e.g., if you start at 7 am, you have until 7 pm). Anything goes. Distance can be completed in one paddle, or in chunks with rest in between. Strategize wisely! This is intended for neutral/open-water (incl. downwind) conditions. No running river currents in this one.

Posting note: If you need to post multiple GPS links, you’ll have to publish a race report to the website first, and add all your GPS links to that post, then use that post link in the GPS link of your entry.

Final results ranked by total distance covered. You’ll lose 1/3 series point for every km behind the group leader.

La vraie dernière course est à l’île d’Orléans le 15 😉😉 Championnat de Downwind à Québec - 2ème édition 😇😇

C’est vraiment cool de voir combien tu t’es améliorée cette année et la confiance que tu as prises avec Jean a tes côtés !!

Bruno Turcotte ah c’est vraiment gentil! Merci de m’avoir intégrer au TEAM QC a Burlington et ensuite dans toute les courses de la saison!!! Jean fait dire qu’il a vendu son « gros » board pour magasiner un SIC comme le tien 😉

Downwind 12 km Prone

Finding the time and the right time for this one was a dual challenge for September. Sure enough the morning I was to go the winds changed. I changed course. (It often doesn’t matter - wind, wave apps, environment Canada or how obsessively I check.) Winds didn’t make for a fast run but were steady and stayed the course. Water - total cooperation with only a few intermittent swells that made it fun. Smooth right at the end. A beautiful run in open water (my favourite) on Lake O in a rare even tempered mood.

All 10 Challenges Done
But not always so easy on a Prone. End of DW 12 km I switched boards with my SUP buddy and after paddling 1.5 km on my prone he said, “you can’t stay in this position for very long. Prone is hard.” (And he’s a fit Iron Man😂) Yup it can be. Glad he said it. (And feeling shamelessly chuffed!). But it’s where I want to be… close to the water. ❤️

Best of luck everyone for the final challenges🤞
