Canoe Rental Fee

Teams may bring their own canoe or kayaks. You will be paddling a flat lake during this race. If teams do not have a boat you can rent a canoe or a kayak(if you are a solo racer). Boat rental is $40. If you are a 4-person team you will need two boat rentals since canoes only fit 3 racers. If we can get rentals for cheaper we will adjust the price to help out racers with this fee. 


*Paddles and PFD's are included in the rental fee
