RCC at the High Water Run Canoe Race

posted May 11, 2015, 5:57 AM by Hector Carranco
This past weekend two  Rideau paddlers, Jenn Cross and Courtney Spratt, competed in the High Water Run Canoe Race in northern Ontario near Kirkland Lake.  This annual race, in its 25th year, is organized by the Northern Prospectors Association and the Local Services Board,  and covers 16 km from lake Sesekinika to Kenogami Lake, along the Blanche River, an ancient route of the Voyageurs.  The Rideau paddlers came second in the women’s category even with a spill in the chilly water (the ice had been gone less than a week!)
