Welcome to the Kan-U-Hakit Outrigger Sprints!
The next FGPC Kan U Hakit will be held on Sunday, March 7, 2021 – OC6
FGPC will issue a “heads-up” notice for each event 6 weeks before the event date. The six-week notice will provide teams with a five-week window to either prepare their teams and register if we are able to safely run the event, or stand down and consider the next race on the schedule. Decisions that affect each FGPC-hosted race will follow a consistent timeline that you can monitor, available HERE.
Registration for 2021 events will open in early 2021.
This race takes place at the Fairway Gorge Paddling Club (FGPC) along the Selkirk waterfront in Victoria. This OC6 race is a 1,500m sprint on a 500m course, requiring 2 buoy turns. Evenly spaced buoy markers near the Bay Street Bridge (start line) and at the FGPC (finish line) will be set out in each lane. Each race will consist of two or three boats.
- Divisions included are Women, Mixed and Men, with seeded heats followed by semi finals. The fastest three semi finalist teams in each category will advance to the final heats at the end of the day.
- The same crew of 6 must race in each race. A substitution will move a crew to the ‘exhibition’ category for the remainder of the event.
