You can either paddle alone or work in a team of up to 12 paddlers, in Singles, Doubles or Fours, Kayaks or Canoes.
Over the years a wide range of canoes and kayaks have been used to complete the course, racing K1’s and K2’s by those looking for fast times; open Canadians; sea kayaks and even plastic river boats by those looking for more of a challenge.
