There a few places for an event that look like this. Wow. Canadian Downwind Champs is a point to point downwind race. Last year’s event saw 200 competitors and we are entering our 6th year. Set in spectacular Howe Sound British Columbia. The 20 km race runs from Porteau Cove to Squamish BC. The course has been called the most beautiful race route in the world. The venue is an amphitheater of towering cliffs and turquoise waters. Squamish is an outdoor recreation mecca, with options for kiting, sailboarding, rock climbing, mountain biking and mountaineering.
