The Turf-Latulippe female elite team finished in 8th place on Sunday, with a time of 1:16:06,86. They are seen here passing the Group Voyages Québec team after touching the buoy at the ferry terminal on the Quebec side of the river where the river was fairly clear of ice, allowing teams to row.

On Saturday, February 9, Muriel Cayouette, an English and Spanish teacher at Collège Mérici, and the five other women on the Female Elite Turf-Latulippe team were busy applying a secret wax formula to the hull of their ice canoe.
