Foggy morning doesn’t stop the Eco 360 races

“We had 118 vessels registered, surfski / sea kayak/ canoe and row boats.”

The ninth annual Alert Bay 360 Eco Paddle was held Aug. 6 on a quite foggy morning.

“We had 118 vessels registered, surfski / sea kayak/ canoe and row boats,” said organizer Luke Lessard.

“We had 85 prizes to give away, worth over $10000 retail value.”

Lussard stated the event was not only for experienced paddlers, they also had a couple who were celebrating their wedding anniversary, and their oldest paddler was 80-years-old and the youngest was 10.

“This year was a foggy race, but paddlers were happy to see minke and humpback whales,” said Lessard.

Results from the races are as follows:
