Take part in any canoe, kayak or paddle board for a treasure hunt along the river
How many control flags will you find along the river at Bishopthorpe in 60 minutes?
Record the code numbers on each flag on your tally by pencil or punch
This is a great event for families in double kayaks and canadian canoes as well as for single paddlers. Children will have a lot of fun spotting and recording the coloured flags and their extra eyes and hands in the canoe will be very useful.

Start & finish by dibbing electronic timing boxes on the water. Dibber hire £1 or bring your own.
There will be a different 1st control for each boat. Collect all other flags in any order
Download your time back on land. 10 points scored for each control flag correctly recorded.
