2016 Bluz Cruz MS River Canoe & Kayak Race

2016 Bluz Cruz Mississippi River Canoe & Kayak Race is coming up on Saturday April 30 in Vicksburg, Mississippi!
Sign up today March 30 or tomorrow March 31 and save $10. On April 1st, the registration fee goes up by $10. So, save some cash and sign up today.
The race Starts at the Madison Parish Boat Ramp in Louisiana (north of Tallulah, LA). Paddle 21 miles down the Mississippi River (Coast Guard shuts down towboat/commercial traffic) and take a left on the Yazoo River and paddle 1 mile to the Finish Line at the Vicksburg Waterfront boat ramp. Lunch is free to all racers… then enjoy friendship, river stories and the Awards Ceremony.

Paddle your own boat or jump into the Quapaw Canoe Company big canoes (each canoe holds around 12 paddlers) and paddle down the Mississippi River in a Guided Tour. Groups welcome.
The race plans are going well and it looks like we will have terrific conditions for the race. Water levels are forecast to be medium water (20-30 ft Vicksburg Gauge). At that level the river will be fantastic. You should see beautiful sand bars and there should be plenty of water for everyone.
The Bluz Cruz t-shirt will be AMAZING! You’ll probably want to buy an extra… it’s that cool…
So don't waste another minute, and Get Registered today
Feel free to send me questions and look forward to seeing you on the water.
