NSPN safety boaters needed 7/25

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

We're in need of safety boaters to help out SSCW. If you would like to participate, please let me know as soon as possible. This is a great way to help the environment, SSCW and NSPN. Here is a little bit about the races:

"Paddlers of all levels are invited to participate in the 2nd Annual Salem Harbor Kayak and Canoe Races on Saturday, July 25 at Forest River Park, 98 West Avenue, Salem. Proceeds from this event support Salem Sound Coastwatch's efforts to keep our coastal waters safe for recreation.

Races include a 2.5 mile touring class course, and a 5+ mile course for competition classes. The course is in Salem's inner harbor between Forest River Park and Derby Wharf. Classes are kayaks, canoes, surfskis, outrigger canoes and touring. Classes will be added if three or more similar boats enter.

Cash prizes and medals will be awarded, and the event is ACA sanctioned. Entry fees are $30 in advance and $40 day of race. Entry fees are tax deductible and include food, music and giveaways. Register online at active.com or click here to download the registration form. For a map of the course or more information, visit swimandfin.org.

This should be an exciting race with great visibility from the shore. Bring your family and friends. There will be free parking and admission to the park.

The paddle follows an open water swim of 500 and 1500 meters which also has cash prizes. The swim starts at noon. You can enter both races, or at least pass the word on to your friends!

Salem Sound Coastwatch is a nonprofit watershed organization. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions. 978-741-7900 or info@salemsound.org.
