2016 Nolichucky Hometown Throwdown #2

tommygunn wrote 901 days ago:


The second event in the 2016 Nolichucky Hometown Throwdown series was a new event format for us by racing up river.  We had a good turn out with 12 competitors joining in for some friendly attainment race competition with the Nolichucky Beer League!  We had a few spectators who watched and cheered on the competitors from the river bank.  The event was held in the Nolichucky River Gorge, TN on a nice mild evening with mostly cloudy skies.

The river level was around 950 CFS and spirits were high with many of the racers eager to give this new race event style a go!  The course start was up at a spot in the bottom of the gorge known as Cherokee Dam above the USA Raft river access.  The finish line was the river right eddy at the bottom of Twin Eddies (The last Class III rapid in the gorge) 1 mile upstream.  The course have several class I-II rapids racers had to ascend to make it to the finish line.  We launched classes in a mass start format and good times were had by all!

Fourth Annual World Kayak 2015 Jordan Race!

bozemankayaker wrote 1207 days ago:


In much the same style as the 2014 Jordan race, here comes the 2015 Jordan race! Come out to race the legendary rivers of Revy!

Race will be composed of teams of two running from rapid number three down to the bridge. Times will be taken, and the fastest boaters will win prizes.

Safety will be provided by your team member. Any help you get outside that from other racers, organizers, bystanders or lost tourists should be considered a bonus so make sure you would be comfortable paddling the river alone with your friend on any other day, when glory is not on the line.

Gather at the powerline pull-out river right of the take-out. Registration (free) is from 1 – 2 pm, race starts at 3. Two minute intervals, One run. Be in your gear and ready to go when you’re meant to.

Awards will be held around 4:30.  World Kayak and Endless Adventure will be providing prizes for the event.

After party will take place after. BYOB.
