Wenatchee River High Water Event!

james wrote 101 days ago:


Holy blow out!!!
As I read the local river gauges this morning, we are looking at:
Wenatchee River in Monitor: 18,000 rising 150/hr
Wenatchee River in Plain: 12,100 rising 150/hr
Icicle Creek: 4,790 rising 30/hr
Peshastin Creek: 940 falling 19/hr
I have made the executive decision, that since everything is way too high to try and have any sort of order to an event, that I will be in Cashmere at 5:00 pm to go play boating with anyone who would like to join. You don’t even have to sign a waiver!
If you’re feeling like chasing some big lines on something harder, go get it! It’s not everyday we see levels like this, so I hope everyone gets to enjoy it!
See you in Cashmere this evening!
Cheers,
T-Pot!

Down River Endurance Challenge

tommygunn wrote 122 days ago:


Good morning Wenatchee Valley paddlers!!!
First of all, I would like to thank all of the whitewater boat riders who have participated in the last two weeks of events. The races have been competitive, the drive to perform is apparent, and the Bootjack has been extra tasty, as has the Fanta and Gatorade (Kurt).
Secondly, I have been receiving a lot of feedback from the community pertaining to new events that you would all like to see. Keep the ideas coming!! This is extremely helpful in creating fun, new, and competitive kayaking events every week, so thank you for that.
Lastly, here is what we bout to get into tonight!
Down River Endurance Challenge!!!
The first two events this season focused on navigating semi-difficult whitewater with speed, power, and agility. However, no section we have raced was longer than a three minute sprint. As we enter the heart of spring runoff, endurance and cardio are attributes that will be necessary for descents of Icicle Creek, Tumwater at high flows, and countless hours of getting blunted at Turkey Shoot (translate as you wish).
Also, on the horizon, are big events such as the Robe Race, the North Fork Championships, and many other events across the country where the competition lives and breathes whitewater.
So, here is the plan for tonight.
We will meet at Riverside park in Cashmere at 5:00 pm. With as few vehicles as possible, we will transport all competitors to the Dryden Dam. Paddlers will have from the Dryden Dam to Rodeo Hole to warm up. Then, we will have a MASS START RACE from Rodeo Hole, to the Cashmere Bridge.
I understand that this is not a challenging section of river and the flows are not “high”. That is not the point. The purpose of this event is to understand what is necessary to remain competitive in a down river paddle that takes over 20 minutes. I will be providing a finish time to each paddler. That way you can repeat this stretch of river at a future date and gauge your improvement, if you wish.
Drink lots of water today, eat a decent meal at least an hour before the event, and I will see you all at 5:00! Any questions? Bring em to the take out.

Infinity Wave Surf Throwdown

bozemankayaker wrote 435 days ago:


It’s Wednesday again, and the river is even higher than last week. I guess we’re getting that big runoff we’ve been hoping for! It looks like she peaked this morning at just under 19,000 cfs and is now slowly creeping down. I paddled the play run yesterday in my Rockstar and there were few waves that were really crackin in the short boat. However, there was one that was extra baller.

Given that this may be a once every couple years flow, tonight we are going to get our big wave surf on. The location? The newly named “Infinity Wave” in Drunkards Drop.

Drunkards has been home to some of the most rippable waves on the Wenatchee. With the classic Hawaii 5-0, the big air inducing Trinity, and the coldest ‘Jacuzzi’ you’ve ever been in, it’s time to add one more to the list of shred spots stacked up in this short section of river.

This evening, be prepared to hike laps, paddle hard, and surf big because it is on! We will meet at the Cashmere take out at 5:30, as per usual. See you all there!!
