Congratulations to Rideau CC for winning the event with 296 points. Balmy Beach was 2nd with 57 points, Richmond Hill 3rd with 38 points.
Rideau’s win contributed to the club being the OCup Series Grand Champion for the 4th year in a row, while Balmy Beach’s impressive performances ensured they are the OCup Series Excellence Award winner for the 3rd year. A shout out to North Bay Canoe Club who moved from 12th position on the 2017 OCup Series Excellence Award leader board, to 4th place in 2018.
