NoliFest 2018 Beat Night Fall BoaterX Results

worldkayakdude wrote 1 day ago:


Photo by Dale Swanson Bristol Motor Speedway was not the only great racing colosseum the weekend of April 13-15 th in the Tri-Cities! # beatnightfall at NoliFest had lots of action in the 8 mile enduro style course down the Nolichucky Gorge. There were a total of 25 athletes in the inaugural event and Shane Benedict cheered from the side as the honorary sweep.  The river level was near 1,400 CFS, which was a decent medium flow for the run from Popular, NC to USA Raft Outpost near Erwin, TN (The site of NoliFest).  The GO FAST event was a mass start at the put-in and first one down to the USA Raft landing was the winner!  The real interesting part of the event was the BoaterX did not start till late in the evening at 7:00 PM, so athletes only had about an hour and a half to complete the course before the ran out of daylight.  Photo by Ryan Horn Athlete’s spirits were high and motivated to go fast when the 3..2..1..GO countdown went down and huge wake was created in the pool at launch!  Rubbing was part to of this BoaterX event as athletes jostled for positions down the course

Good morning Wenatchee Valley paddlers!!! First of all, I would like to thank all of the whitewater boat riders who have participated in the last two weeks of events. The races have been competitive, the drive to perform is apparent, and the Bootjack has been extra tasty, as has the Fanta and Gatorade (Kurt). Secondly, I have been receiving a lot of feedback from the community pertaining to new events that you would all like to see.
