About BCAnoe

Written by BCAnoe!

The Belize Canoe Association (BCAnoe) was formed January 1st, 2001 by Elvin Penner, Julian Sherrard, and Luis Garcia and was registered at The General Registry in Belize City, Belize on February 2nd, 2001.

BCAnoe aspires to be the recognized body for canoe racing in Belize.

Our goals are:

  • To promote canoeing as a sport, which can be enjoyed by families and people of all ages, as well as serious racing for the enjoyment of both canoeing teams and spectators alike.
  • To, once a year, send the best Belizean team to at least one international canoeing event.
  • BCAnoe is not-for-profit. All proceeds are reinvested in the sport, in the form of training and encouragement for members of the general public who would like to learn to canoe, and also in an environmental aspect, in the form of educating people on how to maintain a natural and un-polluted environment.

BCAnoe organizes and holds a series of canoe races each year.

A calendar of events will be made available by December 31st of each year.

Other canoe races, not organized by the BCAnoe, can be endorsed/approved by BCAnoe if they follow our Race Guidelines.

Canoe Registration

The Coast Guard will be assisting BCAnoe with canoe registration and life jackets / PFD inspection. This is to ensure that your life jackets and / or PFDs are serviceable. This will be done at the time of registration of your canoe. Only inspected life jackets and/or PFD that have been tagged will be able to be worn during our events.
