On Saturday Oct 2/21 four members of the Milton Canoe and Camera Club attended the Annual Fred Lynch Race event hosted on the Dartmouth lakes. This event commemorates the founding member of Canoe Nova Scotia, "Fred Lynch" and the efforts he made to the sport of canoe racing in this province. This year's event was well attended by sprint, marathon, SUP and recreational paddlers.
The route starts on Lake Banook, the paddlers go up to Lake MacMac and paddle/portage (400m) through Shubie Park, then all the way to the top of Lake Charles, before returning to the Finish Line on Lake Banook. Total 16km.
Our teams, composed of Elise Johnstone-Agar and Abby Lewis placed 5th and Connor Agar and Dave Lewis placed 3rd, both in the Proboat Marathon Class. Definitely a good day on the water and a chance to catch up with old paddling buddies!!
