Kayak Challenge 2016

Kayak Challenge logo

Join us in support of the Abaco Cancer Society and Friends of the Environment for Abaco’s sixth annual Kayak Challenge on November 5th at Pete’s Pub in Little Harbour. Any craft you can paddle will be welcome, from kayaks and paddle boards to canoes – just no engines!  The course will take you through the scenic Bight of Old Robinson, part of the newly established East Abaco Creeks National Park. Paddlers will be welcomed back with a beach party at Pete’s Pub.

How do I get involved?

Email us at info@friendsoftheenvironment.org for the registration form and bring the signed registration form and waiver to Friends of the Environment along with your $30 registration fee. Paddlers paying $30 will also agree to try and raise a minimum of $100 for the Kayak Challenge with their sponsorship form.  Participants must bring sponsorship form and funds with them the day of the event. Sponsorship donations can be made on-line. Paddlers can also choose to pay a $100 registration fee and not raise additional sponsorship funds. You can pay either registration fee on-line. 

Local businesses may also sponsor the event for a donation of $500 or more and your name will be printed on the event t-shirt. All monies raised will be divided equally between the Abaco Cancer Society and Friends of the Environment and will remain in Abaco to benefit the community.
