| Yukon 360 Canoe and Kayak Race
In 2013 this race will be on the McQuestern River. This will make the rat a little longer than the 2012 race, shorter than in previous years, but still a long race. The put in point is near Mayo, and we will paddle down to the Klondike Highway Bridge. The alternative would have been to paddle down to the Stewart river and back upstream to Stewart Crossing (not an attractive option), or on down to Dawson making this longer that the 2011 race and that wouldn't work for the long weekend.
