The winners of Level 5 in each class will receive a Shirt and Trophy. Paddlers CAN change boat classes through events and still accumulate kilometres for a Level award (eg paddle a K1 in Race 1 and a ski in the other events). The Level 5 awards (minimum of two events must be completed) will be:

  • Female Single
  • Male Single
  • Female Double
  • Male Double
  • Mixed Double
  • U18 Female
  • U18 Male

We will also award the following Prizes:

  • Fastest Female Single
  • Fastest Male Single
  • Fastest Female Double
  • Fastest Male Double
  • Fastest Mixed Double
  • Fastest U18 Male
  • Fastest U18 Female

The ‘Fastest Paddler’ prizes will be determined on the following basis: 1. Paddlers must use the same boat class for all eligible events (eg K1, Long Rec, Ocean Ski) 2. Paddlers eligible for consideration are those who have completed the greatest number of events (minimum of two) in their demographic group - (eg if 4 Female Singles complete three events and 2 paddlers complete four events...the prize will be determined between the 2 who completed FOUR events). 3. The calculation will be: Total Distance/Total Time. Highest average speed wins. Distances and times will be based on the official results.
