Penticton continues to flog age averaging!

We’re continuing with age averaging (it’s really only “age-adding together”, there’s no dividing!) for all crews IF THEY WANT. If you don’t want to age average, you don’t have to! Age averaged crews will be eligible for the really excellent prizes PRCC always has for all official categories (3 crews makes you official). CORA doesn’t allow age averaging for CORA Cup points, so you’ll score points in your actual age category. Race organizers reserve the right to amend the rules at their discretion and without notice (like if you’re stacking a team with five 20 year-olds and a 200 year old corpse to keep you in the competitive “Senior Master” category).

Same great food and prizes, even less garbage!

We’ll be serving everyone’s favourite PRCC post-paddle pot o’ something plus fixings! Bring your own utensils and help us lighten our environmental impact.


Big boat races on Saturday: $180/crew; Juniors $90/crew Small boat races on Sunday: $10/person; Juniors $5/person


If one rep from each club or crew could please email us in advance, we’d appreciate it so we can make enough food, and truck in enough prizes. We need to know as early as possible (tough in the outrigger racing world, we know) what club you are from and in which age divison you will be racing. Official registration forms online or available at the registration table pre-race.

For more information, or to let us know you’re coming:
