    38th Annual Great Dock Canoe Race

    Saturday, May 10, 2014
    Races start at 11 a.m.
    845 12th Ave. S., Naples, FL 34102
    For more information, visit: http://greatdockcanoerace.com/

    This annual Naples tradition marks the end to the busy winter season and the start of summer fun, and is probably Naples’ best-loved spectator sport. Canoe contestants vie in a variety of races. Each year, The Great Dock Canoe Race selects a Theme for the Race. The “Best Dressed Theme Canoe Competition” is judged upon (amongst other things) most creative interpretation of the theme. The races start at The Dock at Crayton Cove. The race lanes are located west of the markers. The path runs parallel to the City Dock, then through the small cove facing Naples Yacht Club, then north to the Riverwalk at Tin City, which is the halfway point. The return trip is the same course in reverse.

    Admission: Free
