2019 Waterman Challenge in Victoria Beach

Post by dgibson » Tue Jul 02, 2019 10:43 pm

2nd annual 2019 Waterman Challenge is on!

The Waterman Challenge is a race combining 2 disciplines;
1st: Stand up paddle boarding (SUPing)
2nd: Either windsurfing or Kiteboarding
There will also be individual races all three disciplines (SUP, windsurf and kite)

In the spirit of the centennial celebration we would like to reinvigorate the passion for wind and paddle-driven water sports which are a big part of Victoria Beach life. This includes windsurfing, sailing, kiteboarding, SUPing kayaking and canoeing. On Sunday July 21st we will be hosting a swap meet to give new life to that old gear laying around our cottages, and to give our community access to affordable used gear. Location and times TBD.

This year’s Waterman Challenge will be held on the weekend of July 27th & 28th. The exact date and details will be announced closer to the day as it is somewhat weather dependent. We will be charging a small entrance fee of $20 per athlete payable by cash on the day of the event with all proceeds going to the Lake Winnipeg Foundation. This is a family friendly event and all ages and experience levels are welcome! There will be a bbq following the award ceremony.

We are currently looking for volunteers to help with the swap meet and/ or race day. If you’re interested please email: victoriabeachwatermanchallenge@gmail.com
