The FLCC Fall Small – Small Boat Race
Saturday, October 28
The spectacular golden colours of the fall season offer a crisp setting for your race day in historic Fort Langley BC. This is a flatwater 10-12 Kilometre loop up the Fraser and around Brae Island. It is a race for any and all paddlers.
The river is at its most pleasant and welcoming stage with flow and currents at its calmest. Afterwards, Fort Langley’s many establishments offer you time to eat and shop. Take your family and friends and enjoy the historic charms of Fort Langley after you post your personal best.
