Long Lake Long Boat Regatta set for Sept. 24, paddlers can register online & on-site

Attention paddlers! The Northern Forest Canoe Trail will close out the 2022 Adirondack race series this Saturday, September 24 by partnering with Long Lake Recreation and Tourism to host the Long Lake Long Boat Regatta.  Pre-registration is recommended. The course is a 10-mile figure eight, beginning and ending at the Long Lake Public Beach. We welcome all NYPRA classes and an “anything goes” category. Use the link below to sign up; you can also register in person from 9:30-10:30 am on the front porch of the Adirondack Hotel (boat number pick up will also take place here). Start time on the beach at 11 a.m.

Register for one of these events:

  • The North American Voyageur Canoe Championships
  • The Adirondack Kayak Championship
  • The New York Collegiate Canoe Championship for co-ed (two male & two female) C-4 Stock team

Register online at the link here.

The race is $30 per person. Kids (14 years old and under) are free.

Boat Classes: Are described in detail here (scroll down the page to “Rules & Specs”).

Every racer must wear a U.S. Coast Guard-approved personal floatation device (PFD). This PFD must be worn at all times. Failure to comply will result in disqualification and forfeiture of entry fee.  Note: Any coastguard approved inflatable PFD, including waist belt PFDs, satisfies this requirement ensuring that a PFD will not restrict performance.

Proceeds from this event will support waterway access improvements and information for paddlers. For more information on NFCT’s work in the region check out this seasonal recap from our stewardship crew.
