Niagara Falls

Some of you want to make the 2008 Worlds into a proper holiday, so we'll be making suggestions for what to do with the family while they're here.

Niagara Falls is probably the most obvious thing to see while you are in Ontario. The city of Niagara is about 2 hours drive West of Toronto (4 hours West of Kingston), and the Falls are one of the most spectacular sights we have to offer. The surrounding area is also great to tour, as the wineries in Niagara on the Lake produce most of Canada's famous ice wine. A nice way to spend a day is to rent a bike and drink yourself silly.

The Falls

But back to the awesome Falls - this wonder of nature generates power for a lot of us Ontarians (and some mooching Americans). The Falls are over 176 feet tall, with 150,000 gallons of water per second rushing down its mighty walls. And guess what - Neil, your ICA Chairman, has promised that if we get more than 50 competitors at the Worlds, he'll sail his new Schappi boat down this mighty rush of furious water. So what are you waiting for? Book your trip now!

Schappi versus the Falls - who will win?
