This will be the first time WRCC travels to this regatta.  In past years there has been a Season Open Regatta in Saskatchewan but it will not be held for 2019.  Along with National Champs being held here at home this season we are taking advantage to go to Seattle. The regatta will have paddler from many BC teams, Alberta and USA paddlers. It is normally a very well attended event with races for every skill level.
Seattle is a great place to visit in the spring and Green Lake is a great course to paddle on.  We would love to see parents and the entire family join us. Coaches appreciate any parents willing to assist the team by supervising from time to time or run errands. Please let us know if you will be joining us in Seattle. All athletes are expected to behave in an appropriately, represent themselves and the Wascana Racing Canoe Club in a top-quality manner, and display the highest degree of sportsmanship.  

    Coach & Athlete Travel:

    Most of our paddlers have never been on a train. This trip will add the experience to the grand live adventure.  A western train ride on the Amtrak Empire Builder, leaving from Williston, ND.  Paddlers will car pool from Regina to catch the train. Details below for west and eastern trips.

     

     Accommodations:

    The Team has reservations at the Nexus Hotel just north of Green Lake.  Athletes will share rooming.

    Pack meals for the train.  The train will have a meal car but you will want to have food with you as it can be expensive on the train.

    Your Equipment:

    You know better than anyone what you will need for personal race equipment.  Do not ASSUME that your equipment has been taken on the trailer.  Work with your coach to ensure what you need gets loaded on the trailer.  To be sure, Pack it yourself!
