Canal Kayak Information

The canal kayak is on Saturday morning this year, with the registration and scrutineering just before the race. Timing is pretty tight so please get there early so that we can get everyone processed. You will need to pass scrutineering before 7:30 am to be eligible to start the race and absolutely no-one will be allowed to begin after the main start at 8 am.

Social Hour and Prizegiving will be outside the MOW Bar in the Twizel Marketplace (town centre) from 5:00 pm.
