This event is to help contribute toward annual operational costs of the Charlevoix Area Community Pool. The mission of the Pool is to provide a wide range of aquatic programs promoting health, fitness, recreation and water safety. The Pool Board and Staff look to provide programs that meet the changing needs of area children and adults through a safe, professionally managed aquatic facility that is affordable and accessible to all. Ongoing local support and community involvement has enabled the Pool to maintain its current facility and offer high quality programming to its patrons. Please consider supporting the Pool today.


Event Information -A fun, unique 4-mile predicted time paddlecraft contest on Lake Charlevoix- Estimate your elapsed time for this 4 mile paddle event and if you come close, you could win an award and prize. Students, seniors, everyone can enjoy this great fundraising event for the Charlevoix Area Community Pool. This is not a race, so if you finish first that does not mean you come in first. No time pieces allowed on board! Here’s how it works. Submit your estimated time to complete the course the morning of the competition. Launch your water craft at Ferry Beach during your assigned start time provided at check-in. When you finish, your overall time will be compared with your estimated time to see how close you were. Technically this is called a predicted time race. Keep in mind that temperature, wind and waves will influence your finish time when coming up with your predicted time! It doesn’t matter if you are under or go over your predicted time, but those that finish closest to their time will be our winners! All participants will receive an event t-shirt. Make sure to stick around for participant give-a-ways, prizes and fun at Ferry Beach while everyone finishes the course! Visit: for more event information.
