2016 Boom to Manatee Race Results

Written by BCAnoe!

On Sunday, January 10th 2016, the Belize Canoe Association opened its 2016 racing season with the year’s first event - The Boom to Manatee Lookout Race.  Eighteen teams of excited paddlers started sharply at 10:00 a.m. from the Old Market Area in Burrell Boom and traveled along the Belize River to end at Manatee Lookout on the Phillip Goldson Highway.

It was a fast start as paddlers sprinted towards the Burrell Boom Bridge to earn the $50.00 Station Prize, which was captured by the Koop Sheet Metal Male Team in 5 minutes and 15 seconds.   As the paddlers settled down, the race quickly opened up as the six different categories – Male (8), Female (2), Mixed (3), Masters (3), Intramural (1) and Pleasure (1) - grouped together and battled on towards the finish line.
