Ahhhh, what a beautiful day it is out there today! Rain drops, birds chirping, and rivers rising. I woke up this morning thinking I could hear the roar of Exit from my bedroom, but then I realized that was just my heater blasting hot air cause its still cold AF.

Anyway, I’m sure you’ve all been itching to find out what fun event we are going to have today so here it is.

THIRD AMIGO HEAD TO HEAD RACES!!!

Meeting at the Castle Rock parking lot in Tumwater Canyon (see map) at 5:30. We will draw numbers to determine who races who and create a bracket (Everyone should be accustomed to this given the current sporting event that is so popular). Racers will put in above the 3rd Amigo and ferry to the eddy above the rapid on river right. A starting line judge (volunteer needed) will blow a whistle and two paddlers at a time will rally down the rapid. The first paddler to reach the finish line (finish line judge also needed) will continue to the next heat. The second paddler gets to drink beer. We will continue this process until everyone has competed!

Please try and be close to on time as we will have a short safety meeting before the event and I do have a small amount paper work for competitors to fill out.

The 3rd Amigo has great river side spectating so bring your friends and family to watch you go fast in these short river assaults.

If you have any questions, please feel free to hit me up!

See you all tonight!!

Tumwater Boater X

tommygunn wrote 408 days ago:


Good morning Wenatchee Valley!!

As the rain falls and the rivers rise, it’s time for another World Kayak Wednesday!!

Given that the rivers in the valley are going to go nuclear in the next week or two, I thought we would take advantage of Tumwater Canyon at mortal levels one last time.

Coming to you with an oldie but goodie, get ready for Tumwater Boater X!!

Tonights event will be split into three stages of mass start races. Competitors will accumulate points as they work their way through each stage. The paddler with the most points at the end of stage three, takes the win.

Race #1 will be a mass start boater X race from the river right eddy above the Dam Rapid to the exposed rock in the middle of the river in between the first and second amigos. After a short rest and regroup, we will continue to stage two.

Race #2 will be another boater X race down the Second Amigo.

Race #3 will be the final boater X race, starting above the Third Amigo and finishing on river left below the Castle Rock Parking lot, similar to last weeks finish line.

This 3 race line up is designed around a point system. For each of the 3 races, 5 points will be awarded to 1st place, 3 points will go to 2nd place, and 1 point will go to 3rd place. Points will be added from the total of the three races to declare the winner.

We will meet at the Castle Rock parking lot, same as last week, at 5:30 pm. After gearing up and getting paperwork out of the way, we’ll load boats and head to the dam.

Please be familiar with this section of river at these levels (3400 cfs in Peshastin) if you plan on racing. Also be diligent about carrying proper safety equipment, i.e. float bags. Also, boat length restriction is 9 feet. No sea kayaks this time!

If you don’t plan on racing, this one will definitely be spectator worthy, not to mention camera worthy. So come hang out and watch the carnage!
If you have any questions, or are keen for a practice lap, hit me up!!

See you all tonight!

Cheers,

T-Pot!
