Ivakkak 2017 racing teams arrived in Inukjuak this afternoon. Members of the community and those who flew in from other villages were waiting for their arrival on the sea ice. Peter Ittukallak arrived first with his partner Putugu Iqiquq. The community feast begins at 6 p.m. where the late Adamie Inukpuk (past Ivakkak champion) will be honoured.
Due to the forecasted bad weather tomorrow, the teams will stay in the community. They may hit the trail on Sunday afternoon, but it’s not confirmed yet. Today’s results will be posted shortly.
