Pacific Cup

A BIG shout out to all those who helped make the BC Championships/Pacific Cup Regatta a huge success this weekend.

The RCKC venue encourages individuals to try things they don’t usually do. In between races we watched lots of youth and adults try boats they haven’t tried before. The forgiving water and weather brought forth lots of cheers, smiles and laughter as well as some great races.

Too many people contributed to begin to offer thanks individually but you all know who you are so pat yourselves on the back! We had a record number of athletes (200+) and a record number of clubs (14). Special thanks to the clubs who came from outside the province (Calgary, Bellingham, Seattle and Gig Harbour) and to out of province officials Floyd Fry and Dean Jenkins for giving up their weekend to help us up our game in officiating and our competition software abilities.

Great weekend everyone! Congratulations to Gig Harbour on their Pacific Cup victory, Kamloops on their BC Men’s Burgee title, Burnaby on their BC Mixed, BC Women’s and BC Overall Burgee titles and to Nelson for bringing home the Team Spirit and Fair Play Burgee.

Hope you all made it home safely and event free!

Individual RESULTS are now posted. Club standings to follow shortly.

I feel the same way when a paddler has perfect form, perfect strokes or when there are two paddlers working together as a team in perfect synchronization on the water.

IT’S
COACHES WEEK
A coach can be many things to many different people. A coach is a teacher, a mentor, a role model, sometimes a friend and confidant. Most of all though a coach must be positive.
A positive coach:

  • Puts athletes first
  • Develops character as well as skills
  • Fosters internal motivation
  • Coaches for mastery
  • Creates a partnership with team members
  • Honors sport

Welcome ‘Timi’

A warm and dry BC welcome is extended to Burnaby Canoe and Kayak Club’s new Head Coach, Timea Paksy. ‘Timi’ has jumped in with both feet to get herself set up in Burnaby, meet her athletes, enjoy her first surfski and stand up paddle board opportunities and attend a Seattle Seahawks game! A multiple World Champion from Hungary, Timi will be a great addition not only to Burnaby but to our growing team of outstanding BC coaches. Please introduce yourself to her at the Pacific Cup Regatta where she will be kept busy with 20+ athletes in attendance.
