                    2011 Kalamalka Classic
                    Kalamalka Lake Beach (Vernon) - June 18 & 19, 2011

                                      COURSE DESCRIPTIONS:
                                      Short Courses: All short courses will be staged from Kalamalka Beach on
                                      the West side of the beach. Recreational classes will compete in a short
                                      2.5-mile course around in and around the Kalamalka dock with an emphasis
                                      on fun and of course, completing the race. It’s a beach start and both men
                                      and women will race alongside each other. The competitive classes will race
                                      a more challenging, buoy-riddled, 3.5-mile course to keep things exciting.
                                      It’s a beach start and we’re hoping for some bumps in the water to keep
                                      things interesting.

                                      Sprint Courses (Elimination Style): Get ready for a spectator-friendly, heck-
                                      le-fest when the Sprint courses take centre stage. It’s kind of like a 200m
                                      sprint out to a Quiksilver buoy and back and the best part is that you’re
                                      going head-to-head against other competitors. Winner advances on to the
                                      next elimination heat. It starts with qualifying rounds to seed everyone and
                                      then it’s game on from there. Recreational classes go first followed by the
                                      Competitive classes. Get ready for organized chaos.

                                      Kalamalka Crossing: This is the marquee event of the Classic – a 10 mile
                                      (18km) trek across the length of Kalamalka Lake - one of Canada’s most
                                      pristine lakes. Even if you’re not planning to reach the beach first, it’s one
                                      of those events that can be added to your ‘things to do this life’ lists. Unless
                                      the spring winds change, you’ll start in Oyama from Wood Lake Beach and
                                      head due North to Kalamalka Beach. Race it to beat the clock, to win or
                                      just to say that you crossed one of Canada’s most scenic lakes. Most of you
                                      should finish the journey in under 3 hours with those competitive types
                                      coming in under 2 hours (whoa!).

                                      At the 2010 Kal Classic, Beau Whitehead of Bellingham, Wa crossed in a
                                      time of 1:49: while Lina Augaitis of Vancouver bested the women finishing
                                      in a time of 2:11.

                                                  PFD REGULATIONS:

                         Kalamalka Lake Beach (Vernon) - June 18 & 19, 2011

Want to try SUP racing for the first time? Or maybe you’re not ready to jump into the growing
competitive class? Then the Recreational classes are for you. Be a part of Canada’s biggest SUP festival
and choose from one of three events - all with the goal of having a good time while getting some exercise
through friendly competition. You will race together in a group and then be divided up into age groups to
receive awards from our sponsor treasure chest. Age Categories - 18 & Under (Juniors), 19-35, 36 & Over

Each of three events offers a different style of competition and you can pick and choose which one(s) you
want to try. If you decide, you’d like to try them all, then you have a chance to win the overall title.

You can compete for the title of Weekend Warrior Champion by racing all three events. The person who
earns the most points through all three events wins the title and some cool prizes - Top Male and top Fe-
male will be awarded. You’ll just need a trusty all-rounder (Surfboard style) board to compete in all events.

                           2011 Kalamalka Classic
                           Kalamalka Lake Beach (Vernon) - June 18 & 19, 2011


King and Queen of Kalamalka - Competitive Classes
To earn the chance to win the first triple-crown format for the title of the King and Queen of Kalamalka, you have
to compete in all three events: Sprints, Short Course and Long Course. To become the King or Queen, it will require
strength, speed, skill and strategy. Points will be added across the three events and the winner will be the one with the
most points. For some of the events, you can choose which board you want to use.

Classes and board sizes:
As the sport continues to develop, there is more diversity in board sizes so the classes this year have been designed
to try and accommodate the majority of athletes and their quivers. A 12’6” Race Board (displacement hull), will work
for all events except the Sprint Course. The Sprint features a head-to-head format with a maximum of 4 people on the
course at any given time.

Examples: You could race 12’6” in the short course, 12’ Surfboard in sprints, and then choose a 12’6” or 14’ for the
Long course and win the overall. That’s the strategy bit.

                                                     BOARD SIZES:
Short Course:
   •	 12’6” & Under (Displacement or Surfboard Style) - Men and Women

Sprint Course: (head-to-head)
    •	 12’ & Under Surfboard style* only - Men and Women *boards supplied as required
