Cancellation of Knockout Regatta and Refund Protocol

Dear Racers,

As you may have read from the joint statement released earlier today, the Knockout Regatta is now officially cancelled for 2020. We had hoped BC’s Restart Plan would allow for larger group gatherings by Fall but unfortunately this will not be the case so we must abide by the guidance provided to us by our Health Minister to help keep everyone safe.

We would like to remind everyone of the following options with respect to your registration fee:

  1. Registration funds can be held in trust and applied against your 2021 registration at the early bird rate; or
  2. Refunds may be requested but would be subject to a 15% administration fee to help cover costs that have already been incurred and are unrecoverable. Requests must be made by May 31st via email to
  3. Understanding that some teams may be uncertain of their ability to attend the event next year, we will accept additional refund requests between March 1st and 15th, This request will be subjected to the same 15% administration fee.

Dragon Boating is a social sport. I know we are all missing the water and our teammates. Hang in there.

“Let’s make this our summer of care and consideration for our families, our communities and our province. A summer for us all to remember to be kind, to be calm and to be safe.” – Dr. Bonnie Henry

Take care everyone!
