Kenduskeag Stream Canoe Race

The 2012 Race Results Are Here!

The 2012 race results for the Kenduskeag have been released by Bangor Parks & Recreation. (Download the PDF file here.)

Interesting to note that in this year many paddlers have won their class with what are (normally) lengthy times. But such was the nature of the water this year.

Congratulations to ALL of the paddlers who showed up on race day!

UPDATE: Bangor Parks & Recreation also released a list of the top 50 finishers overall in the 2012 race.


2012 Race Photos Now Online

The 2012 race photos are now online!

This year, photographer Michele Barker joins me with her superb coverage of the Six Mile Falls area. (I stationed myself around the drop above the Shopping Cart rapids.)

So now people have twice as many choices!

Head over to the race photo page of the Kenduskeag Stream Canoe Race website and check it out.


Paddle Smart Symposium 2012


The 2012 Paddle Smart Symposium kicks off this Friday-Saturday-Sunday at the Bangor Auditorium.

The Bangor Boat Show is taking place at the same time, so now there's double the amount of fun!

There will be workshops, demos, Q&A sessions with paddlers (including Mackro, the Maine Canoe & Kayak Racing Organization) and more safety tips than you can shake a paddle at.

If you are new to the Kenduskeag this is a good opportunity to ask veteran paddlers about race prep and other nuggets of wisdom.

See you there!

PS - here's a downloadable/printable PDF file of the Paddle Smart poster.


2012 Race Registration Now Available!

It's the first of March and much of Maine is looking at blizzard conditions today.

If you are daydreaming about springtime, join the club! And if you are daydreaming about springtime paddling, join the race.

There's a new class this year, by the way. "Corporate Class" is for two paddlers from the same company. (No, it's not canoe outfitted with plush seats and cocktail service).

Remember, pre-registration saves you time and money!
