Points: Only 5 of the 10 races will count in the final tally of points. This will allow people who cannot come to all races to have a chance to win the overall prize, or if you have a bad day you can use your best scores. Race scoring is determined by place received in race (e.g. first place=1point second place=2 points…). At the end of the 10 weeks the lowest score for the best 5 weeks in each category wins (e.g. 2,3,2,1,4,2=14).

Rental equipment is available from VKOC for an additional $10. Otherwise, please bring vessel, eg) paddle board, PFD, and whistle (required on your craft). Also encouraged to bring drinks, snacks, towels, and warm/dry clothes.

Important: Your safety & enjoyable experience is our number 1 priority! In the event of inclement weather (rain/lightning/high winds), you will be notified of a reschedule via Facebook event page post.

Prizes: On the 10th week we will have a Final race series party where the winners of each category will receive an award/gift.
