We had a great strong turnout to start the season, and great effort across the board. SUP, OC1 and prone are all represented, as well as Ontario, Quebec, Alberta and the United States. Let’s keep the momentum going through the season!
Monthly Prize Draw
Here’s the draw for May, picked from everyone who submitted results in the 500m Sprint and Spring Classic:
Note: We’re reserving some bigger prizes for the end of season, and an extra swag pack for those that complete every 2022 event!
500m Sprint Results
Dan Miller topped the men’s sprint race with a strong 2:53 showing. Ryan Blake and Brad Petrus round out the podium.
Danielle Holdsworth continues where she left off last season, atop the leaderboard for the women.
Rob Kavcic takes the OC1 sprint with a 2:44 time (line honours), and Ian Hu and Sharon Purdy logged great prone times.
Spring Classic 4k Results
Tim Oliver smoked the Spring Classic with a sub-6:00 pace over 4 km. Dan Miller grabbed second spot, while Ash Adams’ 6:14 pace was good for third place.
The female leaderboard is a copy of the 500m race, led by Danielle Holdsworth. Megan Sheppard clocked in 1 second ahead of Wendy Tillett, a race we would love to have seen live!
Final shout-out to the OC1 and prone paddlers:
From the water
We love seeing the photos of your virtual racing… keep them coming! Half the fun of this league is sharing and seeing where everyone paddles. There are some really beautiful spots out there!
