At the call of 3, 2, 1, Go!, we will release the first racer then in 5 second intervals each succeeding racer will follow. The second race will receive a 5 second deduction, third a 10 second, fourth a 15 second and so on. At the end of the event the finishing judge will tally up the racers results.

This race is rough 1100 – 1200 meters and is intended to test the paddler’s forward stroke. The time domain for this event is estimate to in the 7 – 15 minute range.
