Tumwater Boater X

james wrote 19 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!

Update-2nd HTTD of the Season is this Wednesday

natefry wrote 381 days ago:


It has been a great spring with good flows and great weather. Area boaters have been out daily hitting up all of the creeks, rivers, and play spots that the INW has to offer. A warm April has melted off most of our snow pack but we still have water in the Spokane River and there is another fun HTTD this week. According to Avista flows should stay around the current 2700-3100CFS range for the next week or so. The warm water coming out of the lake and these flows will make for a great event at Sullivan Hole!
• This Wednesday June 15th, event will start around 6 pm.
• Meet at the Mission Road Trail Head Parking area for paper work at 5:30 pm, and then we will move up stream to Sullivan Hole for the Pre-Event Briefing.
• Event will be a multi skill event to include a short slalom style course in the Sullivan Hole Rapid, show off your best tricks in a freestyle session at Sullivan Hole, and if time allows a quick throw bag comp to see who has been practicing their rescue skills this spring.
• All you need is your gear and a throw bag if you have one.
• Come out even if you are not interested in racing. It will be fun to watch and there is always a need for safety kayakers.
• Also bring friends and/or family to enjoy the comp as this location is right next to the Centennial Trail and has a good shoreline for viewing the event.
• After wards we will finish up in the parking lot with some laughs and swag. The new parking area has a great spot with grass and picnic tables for hanging out.
Cheers
