I'm the race director for the San Francisco youth race. The race date is April 21 next year. feel free to contact me with any questions.
2007 will be our 6th year. Last year we had 24 mixed crews, and 10 crews each for the girls and boys division. We think that this is one of the very few Youth only race events around, and the kids love it. all the local adult paddlers volunteer to make this one of the smoothest run races you'll ever see.
the top 2 teams from our race last year went to toronto and the girls team even medaled
(yes there's a story behind this)
we are open to welcoming any out of town teams to this race. we currently enjoy seeing the portland sun dragons come down each of the last 2 years.
Currently the race is a one day race. Mixed crews race 3 times guaranteed, and gender crews can race twice if they advance to the finals.
The race is held on Lake Merced, and the heats are run with 6 boats at a time.
