The Great Foil Challenge

May 27, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

-663Days -6Hours -33Minutes -24Seconds

This event is open to all board styles but with a focus on the Foil boarding discipline. We will be running a circuit from the Centennial Pier harbor (near the Swept Away B&B) up to a Marker at Polly’s Point. How many laps can you do in two hours?
We are partnering up with Canal Beach Watersports ACDC Challenge to help provide great spectator entertainment during the afternoon.

Our fundraising format is as follows

• Registered Riders (via email) to gather pledges for their sponsored participation
• Fundraising Kettles will be at event site for Spectators and By passers to donate

Riders may register at

Aside from the kettles all fundraising donations will be done through the children’s hospital online donation page provided by the Children’s hospital Foundation. This will allow us 100% transparency and 100% proceeds to the foundation. It will also allow easy access to those donating to get a tax receipt. As the last benefit, we are able to track all donations to be able to identify pledges made for individual riders and their amounts.

We have planned each event to be held on a day other activities are occurring to provide alternate entertainment should wind not cooperate. In the event we have a no wind day that event will be forwarded to the next event day and we’ll be creative to make it work. Should it not be windy on our final day we may consider holding over till the Sunday if the forecast looks promising. We do not plan on extending any events past the Canada Day weekend.

We will require all riders to sign a waiver of responsibility to participate.
We have additional liability coverage for spectators provided by three insurance agency sponsors which will be identified here on our web site.

Thank you to our event sponsors!
