18 August 2018 – Latham Island Paddle

Many years ago, when Yellowknife was still a young lawless town, a group of prospectors had a drunken argument about whether Latham Island could be canoed in under 20 minutes. This Saturday, August 18, we’ll see who was right.

The Yellowknife Mutlisport Club and the Samba K’e Paddling Club present the Latham Island Paddle Race. Starting at the the Latham Island Causeway at 1:30 p.m. (sign in starts at 1PM).  Categories include canoe and kayak  singles and doubles, and this year we also have a paddleboard category. Registration is now open at zone4.ca (search for “Latham”).

Lifejackets required (that includes you paddleboarders!). Questions? Email sombakepaddling@gmail.com
