The first ACT regatta for 2008 is being held on Saturday, 02 February. Entries are to be submitted through your club by next weekend. See your club for closing time. The event list will be similar to previous regattas this season, variations will be confirmed in the next couple of days.
A Kayaking Gran Prix is taking place on Saturday 19th January from 10:00 till sundown and then Sunday 20th January from 07:00 until 15:00 on the rowing course from the 1800 m mark to the 500 m mark. The rowing course and Weston Park have been booked for these times and there will be at least 8 large hard-plastic buoys and the two pontoons on the course for the duration of the event. Rowers using the course outside of these times are warned to keep a sharp lookout for these obstacles as hitting them may cause harm. For those users of the lake who are interested, most of the participants in the Grand Prix are Olympic 2008 hopefuls so this event gives Canberrans a unique opportunity to see Australias top paddlers in action.
