This was the 59th year for this premier canoe race and the paddlers and spectators all enjoyed the racing.

Race events included Saturday pro and amateur races and the Sunday recreational races.

Saturday races are 8 miles in length for pro paddlers and 6 miles in length for amateur paddlers. On Sunday, recreational canoe, kayak or SUP paddlers can select from 1, 3, 5 or 8 mile races.

Following New York State guidelines, a maximum of 200 people were allowed at each race event.

Spectators and paddlers celebrated spring with others and took in a socially distanced 1 to 8 mile paddle. Cash prizes were awarded to the top Pro racers, and prizes were awarded to top finishers in other categories.
