A timed race where paddlers must navigate through a series of gates located on a stretch of moving water. There are upstream gates and downstream gates. There are penalties for touching and/or missing gates. There are many different types of slalom boats and it will depend on participation whether or not to have separate categories for these competitions. If we have at least 5 competitors then we’ll make it a separate class. For instance, if there are more than 5 C-1 boaters (Canoe-1 person) then it will be just other C-1 competitors for that particular comp. There’s also C-2, K-1 and both women and men.
