Battle on the San Jac Canoe and Kayak Race 2018
February 24 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 pm
It’s on. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to join us for the 2018 Battle on the San Jac. The race will begin at Good Times Marina on the San Jacinto River below the Lake Houston Dam. It’s deep it’s wide and waiting for you to attack it!!! The long course 5.5 miles will go to the 3rd bridge and turn counterclockwise. The short 3 mile course will turn counterclockwise at the 1st bridge. All classes and courses start together.
Classes include but are not limited to:
K1/K2/Surfski/solo unltd/tandem unltd/OC1-6/multiman unltd/C1/C2/aluminum/Rec canoe/rec kayak/SUP/prone/tube
The race director will designate your craft to a class.
Awards for 1st place in each class
Parking: being negotiated. Usually $10 but looks like $5 per vehicle
The catfish restaurant at the marina is still under flood renovation. Hopefully it will be good to go race day.
Safety: It is law that each paddler has with them a coast guard approved PFD. Wearing a PFD usually makes them more effective. Cellphones carried in waterproof containers are encouraged.
We will have training run group paddle leaving Eisenhower Park around the last of January. This paddle will celebrate Celeste Wilkinson’s life journey. We will post this event shortly. It’s a good chance to view the San Jac course.
