DC Pergamental 2020

March 14, 2020 @ 12:00 am EDT

Welcome to the 3nd annual DC Pergamental indoor paddling regatta! This event is hosted by the National Capital Area Women’s Paddling Association (NCAWPA) and the DC Dragons dragon boat team.DEADLINE TO REGISTER: March 7Racers this year have a variety of sprint and distance races to choose from. Entry fee is a flat $30 for as many events as you want. Organizers recommend no more than 3 races per paddler, but hey it’s your body. :)New this year: some events are single-sided (can’t switch sides during the race) and some are double-sided (switch whenever you want during the race)200 meter – individual – best of 2 rounds – Single-sided500 meter – individual – single-sided500 meter – tandem pair – double-sided1000 meter – individual – double-sided5000 meter – individual – double-sidedWe also have the following highlights from the rules and general logistics: The 200 meter is a “best of two rounds” format — paddlers will race twice, and their best time will be counted towards rankings. When racing as a pair, the speed of the “boat” is the average speed of the two paddlers. Thus, if one paddler has a 2:45 / 500m split time and the other has a 2:15 / 500m split time, then the “boat” will move at a 2:30 / 500m split.Races are divided into divisions according to the number of paddlers registered for that race. If we have a sufficient number of registrations in a given race, we will do our best to divide along:AgeWeight classBreast Cancer Survivor (BCS) All rules and regulations can be found at the Pergamental websitePaddlers in the youth division race for free! For everyone else, registration is a flat fee, regardless of how many races you enter.
