Where – USA Raft, 2 Jones Branch Rd, Erwin, Tennessee 37650

Have you ever wanted to camp out of your white water boat? Here is your chance to give it a try on an overnight trip in the Noli Gorge!
-
Everyone has been asking for this one, so here we go! The plan is to meet up Saturday July 9th mid-morning at USA Raft. USA Raft will shuttle us up to the put-in and we will start making our way down the gorge. We will camp on the river side that night and finish out the run Sunday the 10th.
-
We will likely also do some climbing when we get to camp for anyone that wants to check out that scene.
-
We have a couple rafts lined up to help carry any gear that you may not be able to fit in your boat. The goal with t…his is to not have to buy anything special you may not have to pull off camping out of a white water boat.
-
To join this trip, contact the trip coordinator and let him know about your skillset and gear concerns.

Well once everyone had turned up on a very crisp winters morning it was apparent that we had very little interest from the wider paddling community.. however the hardcore paddlers turned up which was absolutely great..
I had 6 on safety for the day which was pretty equal to the amount of racers, we had 7 for the paddle only race.

So once we had done the shuttle and safety were in place the race was started from Husband and Wife, Mr and Mrs R Mcgonigle, Big thanks to them for helping out and supplying the cakes coffee and hot chocolate…

13 yr old Jamie Mcgonigle following close behind the leaders through the Double weir..

Mike mylie on safety duty at the top gorge.

Kevin Barklay leading the first stretch down the gorge section which was rather big and bouncy, Daryn Hubbucks and Greig passey following close behind.

Greig Passey picking up his 2nd place prizes for the non run race.

Kevin Barklay picking up his second and third place prizes on the non run and the Duathalon race.

Craig sweenie picking up his miniature bottle of whiskey for taking the longest swim disappearing act of the day to help him warm up.. Thanks to Farmer David Smaith for donating it..

Daryn Hubbucks (Me) taking the victory for both Races today..
