About This Experience

We are hosting The Maritime Kayak Race jointly this year with the Trinidad Surf Ski Club (TSC) in Williams Bay, Chaguaramas.

There will be two course distances, 10km for the surfskis and the 6km for all other categories. We are hoping to run a 400m race for children 10 and under. Races will commence promptly at 8am so participants are requested to sign in between 6-7:15 am. Late arrivals will not be allowed to participate.

Registration opens on 22nd April and closes on 15th June or earlier depending on availability of kayaks.

Fees are $100 per adult (18+ years), $50 per youth (17 and under).
Boat rental fees: Single surf skis/sit insides – $100, single sit-on-tops and recreational boats are $50 and double sit-on-tops are $80. (Book early to ensure your choice of boat.) Email for your registration form and rules.

Medals will be awarded to 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners in each category (including sea kayaks, single recreational, doubles, women’s, youth, and an Under 10). T-shirts will be on sale.

Fun kayak events for the whole family start at 10am. Free to the general public. Small kayaks will be available for children.

This event is hosted by the Trinidad Kayak Club and the Trinidad Surfski club and sanctioned by the Trinidad & Tobago Canoeing and Rowing Federation. Our title sponsor is The Maritime Financial Group, and other loyal sponsors are Kia Motors and Phoenix Park Gas Processors Limited.

Parking information would be given in due course.
In preparation for the event there will be two warm-up races in Chaguaramas on 1st and 15th June at 7:00am. These are optional but they do prepare you for the actual event… the registration fee is $20. Boat rental fees are similar as for the main race.
