WELCOME TO THE RRCA
Canoe Race Date Moved to Sunday April 9, 2017
The recent cold snap has re-frozen the Raisin River. Although the temperature has been above zero during the day, it has been dropping down very cold over night. The 14 day trend does not look favourable for an April 2nd race. Currently there is 12 inches thick of ice at some locations along the river. We will be contacting people who have already registered to see if they would like a refund or if they are okay with the new date.
