Northwest Whitewater Racers Event

On August 9th, the Slalom race on the Clackamas river (Roaring River influence) in Oregon was held. This was a race in the Pacific Northwest Slalom championship which includes races in Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia. This race site was very beginner friendly being held on a class II- section of the river at a very low (550 cfs) level. Ideal for first time racers. World Kayak supported this race with the intent to introduce people into the fun and challenging world of slalom racing. Racing of all classes was supported including very expensive carbon fiber racing kayaks, canoes and a lot of recreational plastic boats. We even had a separate class for kayak polo boats this race. As an added incentive World Kayak supported the event with some SWAG for first time racers and winners. 5 first timers were there to collect the bounty. One racer had only been on moving water 3 times before this race!

So if you haven’t tried slalom racing give it a try. Many races are held on “easy” class II whitewater. This gives you a chance to be challenged by tough ferries and eddy turns without the consequence that harder rapids provide. Anybody can try it and the experienced racers are VERY encouraging to newcomers and love to give pointers.

Roaring River Slalom Race

The League of Northwest Whitewater Racers will be hosting the Roaring River Slalom races on the Clackamas river on August 8th and 9th. Lisa Day has worked real hard getting this together this year and it would be great to have a good turnout. More information can be found at http://www.nwwhitewater.org/PDF/2015%20RR%20Flyer.pdf.

Due to commitments from many of the instructors that have taught in the last couple of years there will not be a clinic on Saturday. BUT don’t let that stop you. Come on up and ask one of the other boaters for pointers, they are more than willing to help. But come on out and try the race. The difference of a practice run and a timed run mentally is big. You will be surprised it will challenge you and will be a good indicator of how good (or bad) of condition you are in.

World Kayak will be there to support any first timers with some nice SWAG for showing up and racing on Sunday.

Don’t worry about what boat you are in, people have raced in playboats, riverboats, creek boats, and of course slalom boats. Oh yeah, don’t forget your C-1 or OC1 (canoeist know what these mean) cause you are welcome as well!

Registration is on Saturday, so make sure you stop by to sign up if you plan on racing Sunday.
