ICCC - 1st Iran National Concrete Canoe Competition
Kish Island, Iran
February 5-7, 2011
Azad University of Marand Wins Inaugural Event
national concrete canoe competition took place on Kish Island where
20 teams from state and Islamic
Azad (Open) universities were scheduled to compete. Seven of the 20
boats arrived in tact and the competition rules were eased after the
judges found that only three entries fully met the competition
guidelines. In the end, the Islamic Azad University of Marand won
the competition. A team from the Islamic
Azad University of Zanjan placed second. Qum University was third.
This entry was designed for both
speed and maneuverability by Ali Ghaderpour.
The canoe was built by
students from Azad University of Kerman.
Kish is a
91.5-square-kilometer (35.3 sq mi) resort island located in the
Persian Gulf. It is part of the Hormozgān Province of Iran.
Organizers hope to expand the competition to include international entries
Meanwhile, hats off
to the competition organizers, judges, and participants for a job well
done. It goes to show you that, from a structural standpoint,
transporting concrete canoes to a competition can be as worrisome as
racing them; and, that organizing a competition such as this is not as
easy as it seems. The bottom line is that everyone at
the competition had fun.
