Sherbrooke to host national Canoe Kayak Championships

By Gordon Lambie

Sherbrooke will be host to the 2018 Canadian Sprint Canoe Kayak Championships this coming August, welcoming more than 2,000 visitors to the shores of Lac des Nations in the largest sporting competition the community has seen since welcoming the Canada Summer Games in 2013. The competition will take place from August 28 to September 1, followed immediately by the Masters Tournament on September 2.
“It’s 2,000 athletes over six days on one site,” said Nicolas Lemay, Chair of the Host Organizing Committee and President of the Club Nautique de Sherbrooke. “The athletes will arrive two or three days before, so for the city this means roughly ten days of increased activity and visits.” See full story in the Thursday, June 21 edition of The Record.
