500 m Race-Offs
Teams have an opportunity to compete in the Sudbury Dragon Boat Festival at the same time.

Sunday, July 17:

250 m Race-Offs
2000 m Races

Depending on the total number of entries, it is possible that the 250 m race-offs can be included with Saturday’s events.

Eligible Teams:

These race-offs are to determine entries for the 2006 CCWC’s.

Teams can only participate in the Sudbury Race-Off spot for 2006 if they have already participated in one sanctioned sport regatta – teams that do not will not qualify in the race-off pool in Sudbury. At this time, Pickering Dragon Boat Festival (June 4), Lachine Knockout Challenge (June 11) and GWN Sport Regatta (held in Welland on June 18) are DBC sanctioned sport regattas. Teams may use Sudbury as a sanctioned sport regatta to qualify for NACC’s race-off pool but cannot use it for both purposes.
