in 1984, the "Book of Champions," compiled by
former CCA Commodore C. Fred Johnston, has been a definitive
go-to guide for all paddlers curious to know champions,
clubs, times and other fascinating bits of information about
the races that have enthralled us for over a century. The
second edition, "100 Years of Champions," was
published in 2003 and now here we are, truly entrenched
in the digital age where the demand for updated information
has pushed this much-thumbed resource to make the leap to
of the Twain...
The Book of Champions (BOC) online edition
is now coupled with Canada's Sprint Canoe Clubs
(CSCC), the online pictorial guide created by Liam Birch.
You will find many cross-over links to CSCC, especially
through club logos accompanying each entry. Many of the
features of the original BOC are now expanded in colour
on the CSCC site.
