o Relay Surfski teams cannot switch crafts every change. Substitute craft(s) allowed only once per race and subject to you finding an escort willing to change crafts mid channel. It’s encouraged to find a suitable sized partner, or a ski with easily adjusting footpedals so that no craft changes are needed. OC-1 relay teams must use one canoe.
o OC-1 and Surfski solo: Top 5 will be recognized as open with age group beginning at 6th place.
o SUP and Prone solo: If there is a resounding amount of entries, we’ll open up another board class and/or age group divisions, with top 3 overall being recognized as open, and age groups per board division beginning at 4th place.
o All relay teams are entered in the age group of the youngest team member. Hence, youngest paddler determines your category.
o Relay teams in all disciplines will default top 3 to open with age group placing starting with 4th place.
o There will be 3 starting times to send slower crafts and paddlers earlier. There will be a time cut off, so if you are slow and you want to finish the race, you should start in one of the first two starts. It is mandatory to start at the time for which you registered!
o Prize money is limited only to Surfski and OC-1 solo divisions.
