Question about the 2-man Canoe One of the best tips for the canoe leg is basically stay in the middle of the river most of the time. You'll see many canoes going back and forth to each bank of the river, thinking the current will move them faster, but that is not the case. In addition, practice paddling with your partner on say, Lake Padden, so that you both can get used to each other, and develop some sort of rhythm, and can practice your paddling moves. When you do practice on the river, make sure you go with other canoes, so that you could assist each other if someone dunks. Never go alone with only one canoe on the river, unless you are a very experienced canoeist. Lastly, I would highly suggest that you contact a few places to see if they may offer a one day canoe class. I would start with the Community Boating Center in Fairhaven. Finally, you should contact the Whatcom County Canoe Club at: http://whatcomcanoeclub.home.comcast.net/~whatcomcanoeclub/

There will be no restrictions on what bike you can use. Any bike can be used,including cyclocross bikes. The exception is recumbents, keeping in mind that there will be mud, loose gravel, grass, basic off road conditions. No tire width restrictions will be used either.

In case you have participants still looking for a canoe rental, we have 16'8" canoes available for race weekend. These canoes have been rented from us for past races and pass the race regulations. The cost is $70 for 2 days with the day the boat is pickup up and dropped off not counted as days as long as the pickup is after 4 and the return is before 2. So, someone could pick up the canoe on Friday at 4 and return it Monday at 2 and this would could as 2 days. Cost includes lifejackets, paddles and a marine safety kit.

How this works The main purpose of this forum is to allow folks who want to race in the Ski to Sea to join this "Orphan's List" The Orphan's List is for anyone who needs a find a team to join, or for teams to post messages that they are in need of racers. Anyone can read this forum, as well as post in it. Fellow racers may answer your questions.

His forum is ONLY for Ski to Sea team related posts and may not be used for advertisements or any other unrelated business.

REGISTRATION IN FORUM: In order to POST messages, you must register in this forum. The forum registration is completely separate from your Race Registration. You DO NOT need to register if you simply want to read messages.

For best results, post a message AND search through other threads. For example, if I'm a team captain looking for a kayaker, I would post a message in the "Teams Looking for Racers" thread. In addition to that, I would search through the "Racers Looking for Teams" thread to find messages posted by individual racers, in hopes of finding a kayaker. Make sense?
