Point Series
for
Sea Kayaks, Canoes & Small Boats


Overview

For years WaterTribers have been asking for shorter challenges that could be completed in a day or a weekend, serve as training for the longer challenges, and be challenging in their own unique way.  The WaterTribe point series is designed to accomplish all of these goals. 

Point series races are open to all classes and divisions of WaterTribe.

Point series races will be run throughout the season and in multiple areas of the country so everyone can participate. 

Each point series race will provide participants with several choices for a fun and challenging day.  Two or more loops will be provided with nominal distances between 5 and 50 miles.  Participants can choose the loop they prefer. 

  • Courses range from 5 to 50 miles.
  • Each event will feature a short loop and a long loop.  Some events will provide even more choices.
  • Cost is $35 per paddler

Points are awarded according to the number of miles completed and bonus points are awarded for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd for the longest loop of the course.  Note that bonus points are not awarded for the shorter loops.

Note that you must complete a loop or a challenge to earn any of the points available.

The point series ends each season with the inclusion of the Ultra Marathon and Everglades Challenge into the point series.  Participants in these two races earn points for the number of miles completed and bonus points for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd. 

The award ceremony for the point series is in Key Largo right after the Everglades Challenge award ceremony.

Points can be redeemed for the final race of the season, the Everglades Challenge. See redemption rules in the Everglades Challenge section.  Each point is redeemed at a value of $0.50 per point.  Points of no actual monetary value.  Points cannot accumulate from one season to the next - use em or lose em.
