What is Sprint Canoe / Kayak
Flat water sprint racing is a contest of speed, strength and endurance in which athletes compete head to head on calm bodies of water. Paddlers train and compete in canoes and/or kayaks as singles, in pairs or in fours over a variety of distances. Paddlers race in lanes separated by markers over 200m, 500m, 1000m and longer distances on straight, one way courses.
