RedBull Lower Nolichucky Spring Cleaning w/ Dane Jackson

Where: USA Raft – 2 Jones Branch Rd, Erwin TN 37650
When: March 18 – 19
Meeting Time: 10am March 18th

Every spring, temperatures warm up and it’s that time again; to clean up your home and all that you love. For Dane Jackson, the Tennessee rivers and waterways have been his home since he first hopped in a boat. Conscious of the trash floating down river and collected at the shores as he paddles, Danes wants to make sure that the water that gave him his life’s passion are clean and usable for the next generation of young kayakers. 


Dane Jackson is teaming up with the University of Tennessee Knoxville Outdoor Program and USA Raft to take a group of kayak and outdoor enthusiasts on a two-day trip to clean up the Nolichucky River. The team will be launching from the USA Raft facility each morning and will host a BBQ to all participants on Saturday night.  Any questions, e-mail Nils (Nils.Granger@us.redbull.com)

Creeking Season in Full Swing on the Shores of Superior

natefry wrote 1360 days ago:


YouTube Preview Image

One of the worst winters in history brought more ice and snow than I have seen in my 28 years of existence. The winter news contained daily ice updates on hiking to the ice caves of the apostle islands, a regular summer attraction for sea kayaking adventures. But finally, in April, the record amounts of ice have thawed and the creeks on the shores of Lake Superior are flowing, and there really was no better way to celebrate than with the Lester River Race.

This year, 17 kayakers took to the river while the shores filled with spectators. Safety crews were prepared in case someone’s run did not go as planned and race organizers were thrilled to have the perfect water level. This is only the 2nd year of the now annual event and Ryan Zimny organized another fantastic outing for everyone involved. Only one man could win however and with the water surging and practice laps complete, everyone determined their path for the fastest way through the meaty holes and gigantic waves of rapids with titles like, “oh shit” and “O My God”.

This class IV-V river has everything you want out of a creek race and the guys delivered. With whitewater, nothing is a given, the difference of one inch to the left or the right can result in even the best paddlers having a challenging run or a swim. Only minor injuries were sustained on the river this day and John McConville was competing to defend his championship from last season. Joerg Steinbach gave him a run for his money but fell short by 18 seconds sending Jonny home with the trophy once again.

The many sponsors and support from the city of Duluth deserve much thanks and appreciation for the success of the event and kayaking is becoming more famous as it continues to grow. Many Local news outlets picked up a story on the event. You can even ride along from the view of the Minnesota Public Radio Go Pro Camera to get a view of what these guys were dealing with on the water.  and find the MPR Photo Gallery HERE.   http://www.mprnews.org/story/2014/04/28/video-lester-river-race?from=social

And so…with the steady rain and the melting snow…the rivers continue to flow on the shoreline and have ranged from low runnable to high water levels over the past 3 weeks. For me, I am looking to conquer a few more creeks on the south shoreline before heading north. Hopefully by next season I’ll be ready to compete in the Lester Race.  Watch out guys :) See you on the River!
