Flatwater Canoe Racing
Also known as sprint canoe, flatwater canoe racing is an extremely
specialized sport. Paddlers kneel on one knee and only paddle
on one side to maintain a straight course. A one-person racing
canoe measures 5.2 m (17 ft) and is designed for speed on
a calm surface.
Flatwater canoeing has been an Olympic sport since 1936. World championships are held annually. Dartmouth, Nova Scotia hosted the event in 2009.
Sprints are held on the North Course portion of the Centre.
WIFC is an IFC (International Canoe Federation) sanctioned venue.
