Firecracker Race – The Mississippi Challenge
August 20, 2016
Any paddler using a double bladed kayak paddle is considered a kayak racer (this includes the use of outrigger style craft or canoe/kayak hybrids vessels). Paddlers using a single blade canoe paddle are considered a canoe racer (this includes the use of outrigger style craft or canoe/kayak hybrids vessels). Racers cannot alternate between a canoe paddle and kayak paddle during the race. Two paddlers in a boat are considered a tandem team. Multi-person teams are welcome to race, but as of now a formal class is not established for this division. Stand up Paddle Boarders must race in the standing position and are encouraged to wear a trucker hat and to look really hip and flash a “hang five” sign periodically J …and in recognition of our SUP race sponsor – SUP Saint Louis – mustaches are strongly encouraged!
