YCKC’s Developmental Regattas are a success on all fronts! Paddlers from western provinces are invited to participate in the competition, gracing the podium alongside Yorkton paddlers during the medal ceremonies. CKCK television and local newspapers report the event.
This regatta is important in that it provides beginner canoers and kayakers an opportunity to compete for gold in K1, K2, K4, C1, C2, and C4 races that are 200 m., 500 m., and 1000 m. in length. Athletes experience Olympic-style competition in a safe and fun environment.
We thank all paddlers, coaches, and parents who drive distances during the wee hours of the morning, in order to participate. We are particularly grateful to YCKC volunteers who donate over 260 hours in order to make these regattas a success! Following are some of the comments that we’ve received in feedback:
“In discussing this regatta, there isn’t one thing we’d change!”
"So very well organized!"
“We’ve attended many regattas – this has been the best.”
“It should be two days next time.”
“This is such an important experience for these athletes.”“Thank you again for putting on such a wonderful regatta last weekend. I was truly impressed with how smoothly everything ran. My kids had a wonderful time and were all talking about the regatta this morning at practice. It was such a great opportunity for them.”
THE CONCEPT THAT WESTERN DISEASES ARE LIFESTYLE RELATED AND THEREFORE POTENTIALLY PREVENTABLE AND REVERSIBLE IS THE MOST IMPORTANT MEDICAL DISCOVERY OF THE 2OTH CENTURY!
