What to do next…

If you are a V1 paddler wanting to compete in the singles race, you will need to join a crew, as we do not accept entries to the V1 race from paddlers without a crew. If you would like to join a crew, please register on our “Lost Paddlers” page, or click the button below and we will find you a crew. If you have part of a crew or registered a crew then had some drop out, we can help make up your crew with our lost paddler network.
