CORA Virtual Race #2 (Hosted by Nanaimo Ocean Paddling Club and Lotus Sports Club)



In response to COVID-19 restrictions in British Columbia, CORA has replaced its club-hosted winter races on the Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island with three new “Virtual Winter Series” races.  The second virtual race is scheduled for the period of 13 – 27 February 2021. Registration will open Saturday 13 February 2021. Registered competitors can paddle their race at any time during the week, but race data must be submitted by Sunday 28 February 2021 no later than 5:00pm Pacific time. Virtual Winter Series Race #2 is hosted by Lotus Sports Club and the Nanaimo Ocean Paddling Club and consists of 5km and 10km formats (your choice).  The net proceeds from the race series will be distributed among the seven host clubs in the winter series.  Participants will be entered into a draw at the end of the series for draw prizes, including toques and socks from the series’ title sponsor, Predator.  Click on the link below for more information along with the registration link.

OVERVIEW: Join paddlers from around the world for an enriched discussion on the topic of the month. For our first “CORA Off-the-Water Coaches’ Corner” session, the focus will be on off season and COVID season training. Hosted by Leanne Stanley along with strength-and-conditioning coach Sherry Hunt, questions submitted ahead of time will be the basis of a facilitated discussion with the presenters and participants.

Paddlers will have the opportunity to submit questions on CORA’s Facebook event page and if there’s time, questions may be taken during the zoom session as well.Learn from our hosts as well as other paddlers during these “CORA Off the Water” Coaches’ Corner sessions. Come participate or just listen, it’s up to you.

Many athletes may be “out there on their own,” but CORA wants you to know that you are not alone. Together we get better. Please RSVP via FACEBOOK, and submit advance coaching and winter training questions in the chat section.
