Wenatchee River High Water Event!

saskia wrote 191 days ago:


Holy blow out!!!
As I read the local river gauges this morning, we are looking at:
Wenatchee River in Monitor: 18,000 rising 150/hr
Wenatchee River in Plain: 12,100 rising 150/hr
Icicle Creek: 4,790 rising 30/hr
Peshastin Creek: 940 falling 19/hr
I have made the executive decision, that since everything is way too high to try and have any sort of order to an event, that I will be in Cashmere at 5:00 pm to go play boating with anyone who would like to join. You don’t even have to sign a waiver!
If you’re feeling like chasing some big lines on something harder, go get it! It’s not everyday we see levels like this, so I hope everyone gets to enjoy it!
See you in Cashmere this evening!
Cheers,
T-Pot!

Infinity Wave Surf Throwdown

saskia wrote 525 days ago:


It’s Wednesday again, and the river is even higher than last week. I guess we’re getting that big runoff we’ve been hoping for! It looks like she peaked this morning at just under 19,000 cfs and is now slowly creeping down. I paddled the play run yesterday in my Rockstar and there were few waves that were really crackin in the short boat. However, there was one that was extra baller.

Given that this may be a once every couple years flow, tonight we are going to get our big wave surf on. The location? The newly named “Infinity Wave” in Drunkards Drop.

Drunkards has been home to some of the most rippable waves on the Wenatchee. With the classic Hawaii 5-0, the big air inducing Trinity, and the coldest ‘Jacuzzi’ you’ve ever been in, it’s time to add one more to the list of shred spots stacked up in this short section of river.

This evening, be prepared to hike laps, paddle hard, and surf big because it is on! We will meet at the Cashmere take out at 5:30, as per usual. See you all there!!

Three Amigos Race

tommygunn wrote 525 days ago:


Alright, alright, alright… Event 3 in the Wenatchee Valley for the World Kayak hometown throw down. Is the “Three Amigos Race”! The format will be a race chaser start or Pursuit. At the call of 3, 2, 1, Go!, we will release the first racer then in 5 second intervals each succeeding racer will follow. The second race will receive a 5 second deduction, third a 10 second, fourth a 15 second and so on. At the end of the event the finishing judge will tally up the racers results. This format will give competitors just enough space to charge their line but there is still the potential to get over taken during the run. This race is rough 1100 – 1200 meters and is intended to test the paddler’s forward stroke. The time domain for this event is estimate to in the 7 – 15 minute range. For those training for the Robe race this is a great chance to practice drafting and or your power move to overtake a competitor. For this event we will need a minimum of two volunteers if you are interested please let me know. If there are any local photographers that have the evening free come out and join us.

Registration starts at 5:00pm
Competitor briefing 5:30 – 5:45 pm
Race start around 6:00 pm

Looking forward to racing with everyone. Cheers!

First Home Town Throw Down of 2017

james wrote 553 days ago:


The first event of the season is less than a week away! Looking at the river forecasts for the St. Joe and the Coeur d’Alene, lake levels, and current flows… Confidence is high that we will be able to make things happen at Corbin Wave!!! The level has been holding at a perfect 20,000 CFS for over a week now and there have been boaters out surfing it every day for almost a month. Next week’s event will be @ Corbin Park on Wednesday May 17th @ 6pm. The event lay out is geared to make it fun for the beginner to the advanced paddler, and for the downriver boater and/or the play boater in you. There will be 3 to four heats depending on flows and group size. The individual heat events will be announced at the start of the evening and should provide plenty of entertainment. This location is perfect to bring your family or a friend that is interested in kayaking. The location and ease of access make it perfect for them to watch our local kayaking community in action. So bring your long boat or your short boat and be ready to have some fun!
