Not long now till the Windermere Summer Solstice Lake Race 2013. I hope you’re as excited about it as we are. Lets pray for some sunshine this year! If you haven’t heard about it then here’s a little information about the race;
The Windermere Summer Solstice Lake Race race is an exciting event held on England’s longest lake, at the heart of the beautiful Lake District National Park. The race involves paddlers of all abilities completing either the half or full length of Windermere, and is open to an array of boats from surf skis to canoes. Over the years we have seen everything from whitewater rafts and dragon boats, through to sit-on-top kayaks and handmade wooden canoes. The aim of the game is to get as many paddlers involved, enjoying England’s longest lake on the longest day of the year (or as near to as possible) – some are there just for the journey and some are there to beat the race record!
These are the two options for paddlers to choose from before the day of the Windermere Canoe Kayak Solstice Race. There is an option for you regardless of your paddling ability:-
1.) Long Course (10.5 Miles) – (Experienced only – no ‘Sit on Tops’)
2.) Standard Course (5.5 Miles)- (Most participants with reasonable experience)
Entrance Fee: £12 (Per Applicant) or £22 (with hire)
The 2013 race will be held on Saturday June 22nd and the race will commence at 11am. Registration is between 9am – 10:45am.
