Want to try something new? How about kayak racing at the Lake Arthur Regatta? There are 2 and 4 mile races. Whatever type of kayak you have, you can come out for this small, friendly, low-key event.
Location: Moraine State Park, South Shore
Registration 8:30 AM
Race meeting 9:45
Start 10:00 AM
This information is from last year's race, I assume this year will be the same:
These races are considered ?recreational?, which means they are not officially sanctioned by any local or national Governing Body. They are open to all canoers and kayakers - any class, any age, solo paddlers or tandem paddlers. There is a 2 mile race and a 4 mile race, run concurrently on the same buoyed course on the lake. Registration is required, with a registration fee of $18 per adult, and $10 for children 16 and under. Registration includes a t-shirt. Registration begins at 8:30 AM, pre-race meeting at 9:30, and starting gun at 10:00. Lots of trophies for multiple winners.
