Paddle your sea kayak through some of the most beautiful waters in Nova Scotia!
When – September 11th, 2016 at 3pm
Where – Starting at the Sawpit Wharf on Lunenburg’s Back Harbour and finishing in Blue Rocks Harbour.
This year The Challenge will be a charity event. We will be accepting applications from charities until the end of September. The charity of our choice will be donated $30 for every entrant. The number of entrants will be limited to 40 so book now.
About the Challenge – The Challenge will take kayakers right around the Lunenburg peninsula, a distance of about 12 kms to Blue Rocks. Kayakers will have to navigate from the Sawpit Wharf towards Mason’s Island then head to The Back Passage. The Back Passage is the narrow strip of water that separates Heckman’s Island from the mainland. After passing under the bridge to Heckman’s Island, people will breeze through Stonehurst North and Stonehurst South toward Blue Rocks. The finish is the Blue Rocks Harbour.
There will be separate categories for single kayaks and double kayaks but The Challenge is more about having fun then making fast times.
Registration Fee – $40 per person, plus tax, and this includes a meal, some swag and entry in a draw for prizes. Call to register 902 541-9233. $30 from every registration will go to charity. Only the first 40 people will be accepted.
The Meal– Will be served at The Point in Blue Rocks, there will be refreshments and prizes will be drawn.
