This is an event hosted by the aquatic explorers scuba club and has been for 44 years now. It is a scenic 8 mile canoe race that starts at the pleasant valley recreation park and ends in greenvail park wappingers falls. Most of the race is fairly mellow with a few challenging areas but, a really enjoyable to all. Although this is a NECKRA points race it is open to all to participate. Boats are available for rent and medals are awarded to the winners of their classes. Boats are lauched all day form 8am to 3pm. So come on out and have some fun with us on our 44th annual canoe race.
