Bob Kay's 52nd Consecutive Championship

In 2009, at the CKC national regatta, Rideau’s Bob Kay raced C-1 Masters B 1000m.

This was his 52nd consecutive year in which he raced at the Canadian Championships.

His streak began in 1958 when he was a member of Cartierville Juvenile War Canoe that won gold on Mooney's Bay, Ottawa.

After 34 years with Cartierville, Bob moved to Ottawa and has raced for Rideau since 1992. Yes - he is in his 70's.

No one will break this 52 year streak!
