Down River Endurance Challenge

saskia wrote 88 days ago:


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. Keep the ideas coming!! This is extremely helpful in creating fun, new, and competitive kayaking events every week, so thank you for that.
Lastly, here is what we bout to get into tonight!
Down River Endurance Challenge!!!
The first two events this season focused on navigating semi-difficult whitewater with speed, power, and agility. However, no section we have raced was longer than a three minute sprint. As we enter the heart of spring runoff, endurance and cardio are attributes that will be necessary for descents of Icicle Creek, Tumwater at high flows, and countless hours of getting blunted at Turkey Shoot (translate as you wish).
Also, on the horizon, are big events such as the Robe Race, the North Fork Championships, and many other events across the country where the competition lives and breathes whitewater.
So, here is the plan for tonight.
We will meet at Riverside park in Cashmere at 5:00 pm. With as few vehicles as possible, we will transport all competitors to the Dryden Dam. Paddlers will have from the Dryden Dam to Rodeo Hole to warm up. Then, we will have a MASS START RACE from Rodeo Hole, to the Cashmere Bridge.
I understand that this is not a challenging section of river and the flows are not “high”. That is not the point. The purpose of this event is to understand what is necessary to remain competitive in a down river paddle that takes over 20 minutes. I will be providing a finish time to each paddler. That way you can repeat this stretch of river at a future date and gauge your improvement, if you wish.
Drink lots of water today, eat a decent meal at least an hour before the event, and I will see you all at 5:00! Any questions? Bring em to the take out.

Reno HTTD #4

james wrote 402 days ago:


Bad Weather Wed made it’s return this week with cool winds, clouds, and some rain drops.  Even so we had a great time surfing the competition wave at the Reno Whitewater Park.  Flows have finally come down to the normal peak flow range of around 3-4,000 cfs instead of 6,000 cfs it has been for several months.  This made for a great, friendly wave hole for blunts, cartwheels, clean spins, loops, and mcnasties.  Kayaking was followed by Ninkasi beverages and prizes from our sponsors including Accent Paddles, IR, Astral, Kokatat, Effort and Mountain Khakis.  

In two weeks we will be having our final HTTD of the year in Reno and we have a Large IR Drytop as part of the Raffle, so plan on coming out for that.  Information on location will follow.

See you soon…
