Join the fun in Alert Bay BC on July 24, 2010 8)

Klepper paddlers, take the challenge and paddle in the 2nd Annual Alert Bay 360’ Kayak Eco Paddle around Cormorant Island.

Join an Olympian, world-league champion paddlers, local bands in their war canoes... and fellow casual paddlers of all ages during the Seafest Weekend.

• The entry fee is by donation, benefitting the local Lions Club
• Random prize draws include a $4,000 composite kayak donated by Atlantis, and a $2,500 native mask
• There is $3,500 in prize money for the top three male and female finishers (equal prize money for both sexes)
• The setting includes spectacular scenery dotted with totem poles and is close to an ecological reserve that is a gathering place of orca whales

The second annual Alert Bay 360 is open to any self propelled craft capable of circumnavigating the 12 km around Cormorant Island. At the northeast end of Vancouver Island, Alert Bay is easily accessed within a days drive from Vancouver, B.C. or Seattle, WA.

Mark your calendar now and make a weekend of it! There are lots of activities for non paddling spouses and family members. Various accommodations are available including beach side camping and private cabins.

All participants must pre-register before the Alert Bay 360 begins. You may register via the internet by contacting Eric Gregory at boatharbour@alertbay.ca or in person on race day. Final Registration will take place at the Alert Bay Municipal Wharf from 08:00 am - 10:30 am on July 24th, 2010. Visit http://www.alertbay.ca/ for more details.

Klepper Folding Kayaks in Canada does not sponsor this event, but we thought it was so cool :wink: and a great opportunity to meet paddlers from all over in a 'circumnavigation' event. There are over 200 participants expected this year.
