2015 Canoe and Kayak Race Cancelled

Due to circumstances that are beyond our control, we are sorry to say that we have had to cancel this year’s Canoe and Kayak Race which was set to be held on Saturday, July 18th on the Royal River and Casco Bay.

Following consultation with the local Police, Harbormaster and Coast Guard, it became clear that because there are so many other events happening on the water that same day, we would not have the resources, boats and volunteers to help with our race.

We apologize for the cancellation but we intend to make next year’s race even more spectacular so we hope to see you there!
