Kayakers slalom on Hope Slough

The Chilliwack Center of Excellence hosted an IceBreaker kayak race on the Hope Slough.

The first race in the Chilliwack Center of Excellence IceBreaker kayaking series took place on the Hope Slough last weekend.

Sam Fletcher took first place in the junior men’s race, clocking a time of 82.94 to finish well ahead of Caleb McHallam (109.63).

The cadet women’s race went to Isabel Taylor (154.31), with Anya Flueckiger (192.6) in second. The cadet men’s race was extremely tight at the top, with the narrowest of margins separating winner Finley Capstick (134.55) from runner up Rhys Taylor (134.62).

The adult open race saw Barb Taylor win with a time of 172.93 over runner up Stephanie Flueckiger (193.12).

The next two races in the series take place Feb. 18 in Fort Langley, and Feb. 19 at the  Highway Gates (junction of Inter Provincial Highway and Highway 1). Points are accumulated at the three IceBreaker races, and the champions will be named next weekend.
