Canadian Downwind Championships
The CDC is a point-to-point, mass start, downwind surfski, SUP, Prone and OC’s race. This 21 km race route will test paddlers’ skills and stamina as it runs downwind through the heart of the stunning Sea to Sky corridor.
Racers will paddle from Porteau Cove up Howe Sound. Starting just south of Porteau Cove the SUP and prone racers head straight towards Squamish. Surfski and OC racers will sprint cross wind approximately 2 km to the middle of Howe Sound and contest for the THINK Hotspot. From here paddlers will make a 90 degree turn and run north up Howe Sound.
