In keeping with tradition, the 6-mile and 4.5 mile courses will include a trip around Ross Island. As for the direction, and the specifics of the crowd-pleasing buoy turns near shore, those details are yet to be announced. We had a lot of fun with last year’s course, so expect something similar. Course specifics will be covered in detail at the pre-race skippers meeting at 9:30.
The 2-mile Novice course and the kids races will keep paddlers visible from the start/finish area at all times.
This flyover gives a good overview of the route around Ross Island.
