Paddle Williamstown Races

Got a competitive spirit in you?  Then why not participate in one, or both, of our races?

4-Mile Race

Our 4-Mile “Marina-to-Harbor” race will help start off the morning’s activities, as competitors will start at the Williamstown Marina, paddle south for a half mile, make a clockwise buoy turn, and then head for the finish line at the western portion of the lake, in front of Oak Harbor Resort.

This race is open to recreational kayaks (14’ or less in length) and canoes.  Paddlers will compete in a variety of classes, based upon age and gender.

Races will begin at 7:30am near the Williamstown Marina.  A MANDATORY pre-race meeting will be held at the same location at 7:15am.

200-Meter Race

Scheduled for later in the morning at 10:30am, this race is an all-out sprint that parallels the dam located near the middle of the lake.  Paddlers will start in front of Ruby’s Boat Dock, and head to the finish line 200 meters later at the other end of the dam, in front of the spillway.

Depending on the number of entries in each class, paddlers will either compete head-to-head, or against the clock.  Like the 4-Mile race, this race has a variety of classes, based upon age and gender, and is open to recreational kayaks and canoes.

A MANDATORY pre-race meeting will be held near the start line, in front of Ruby’s Boat Dock at the north end of the dam, beginning at 10:15am.
