Winter Race Series  

We are super excited to announce that the Canoe Slalom BOP Winter Race Series is back for 2021. This exciting series has been designed to give everyone the opportunity to gain valuable race experience in a number of venues and hopefully go on to claim the title of Winter Race Series Champion!  

The Winter Race Series will be comprised of the following four races:

  1. Kawerau Race Day (13th June 2021)
  2. Kaituna Race Day (18th July 2021)
  3. Kawerau Race Day (22nd August)
  4. Kawerau Race Day (19th September)

To calculate the overall winner, you will be awarded points throughout the series in each class on the following basis:
1. 1st equals 1 point, 2nd equals 3 points, 3rd equals 5 points, 4th equals 7 points, 5th equals 8 points, then adding 1 point for each subsequent position; 
2. A “Did Not Finish” (DNF) receives a point score attributed to the last athlete plus one point. 
3. Tie breakers will be decided on the fourth race result

We know that is can be difficult to get to every race so the final scores will be calculated on your best three results.

Athletes are eligible to compete in the following categories K1M/ K1W/ C1M and C1W.

We will be awarding 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize of the following age categories U18 and Open at the Christmas Fun Race
