Ice Canoe Challenge in Sorel
Great photo opportunity, If you have tele-zooms of tele-lenses, it's the perfect time to use them!!
Athletes Face the Ice! Dozens of teams square off over the frozen waters of the St. Lawrence River, competing in one of four classes: Elite Men's, Elite Women's, Competitive and Sport.
Originally a means of winter transport between the islands and shores of the Saint Lawrence River, ice canoeing is now a sport. Crews of five athletes alternately push their canoe across the ice on the frozen parts of the river, and paddle in a river with currents of four knots, tides of over 15 feet, and ice blocks weighing a few tonnes blown by the wind. Shoes with bolts screwed to the bottom are worn to keep their traction on the ice
