Third Amigo Head to Head Races

Good morning Wenatchee Valley!!
I know its been a long week of anticipation since our last World Kayak Wednesday, but I’m about to drop it like its hot!
Last Wednesday, we had 15 competitors show up to paddle in a torrential downpour. As I look out over Leavenworth this morning, it’s looking pretty damn bluebird out there. The river levels are up, the greens and blossoms are starting to pop, and it is just looking really awesome up here in Bavaria right now.
So, without boring you with more BS about how rad of a day it is in Leavenworth, here you go. Todays World Kayak Wednesday event is…
Third Amigo Head to Head Races!!!
This is a classic event in the Spring community event series and the water levels are working out perfect right now.
The event rules are as follows:
Upon arrival of participants, names of present competitors will be drawn and paired in twos. This will be a bracket format event where competitors will races two at a time and the victor of each race will continue to the next heat. The loser can practice their roll in an eddy.
The race will start in the river right eddy above the Third Amigo, and end at some point below the rapid that I decide on later.
We will meet at the Castle Rock parking lot at 5:00 pm.
If you are feeling like the Third Amigo at current flows may be too difficult for you, this is a great opportunity to get on the water with several experienced paddlers and work your way through the rapid with more safety than you’ll know what to do with. After the races are over, there will be plenty of time to practice lines and get a couple casual laps on the Third Amigo.
I am stoked to see everyone tonight! Bring your game face!
Love,
T-Pot

Third Amigo Head to Head

Ahhhh, what a beautiful day it is out there today! Rain drops, birds chirping, and rivers rising. I woke up this morning thinking I could hear the roar of Exit from my bedroom, but then I realized that was just my heater blasting hot air cause its still cold AF.

Anyway, I’m sure you’ve all been itching to find out what fun event we are going to have today so here it is.

THIRD AMIGO HEAD TO HEAD RACES!!!

Meeting at the Castle Rock parking lot in Tumwater Canyon (see map) at 5:30. We will draw numbers to determine who races who and create a bracket (Everyone should be accustomed to this given the current sporting event that is so popular). Racers will put in above the 3rd Amigo and ferry to the eddy above the rapid on river right. A starting line judge (volunteer needed) will blow a whistle and two paddlers at a time will rally down the rapid. The first paddler to reach the finish line (finish line judge also needed) will continue to the next heat. The second paddler gets to drink beer. We will continue this process until everyone has competed!

Please try and be close to on time as we will have a short safety meeting before the event and I do have a small amount paper work for competitors to fill out.

The 3rd Amigo has great river side spectating so bring your friends and family to watch you go fast in these short river assaults.

If you have any questions, please feel free to hit me up!

See you all tonight!!

A Great Night at Corbin Wave

tommygunn wrote 421 days ago:


We had a large turnout of over 15 boaters and the levels were perfect for Wednesday Nights Throw Down at Corbin Wave. For many it was their first time getting in the water and playing at Corbin and the energy in the water was full of excitement. There were three main events designed to be fun yet push all of the paddlers to try something new.
In the first event it was a mass start boater x through the rapid, up the river left eddy, ferry back through the rapid and into the main river right eddy for the first stage of the surf comp. Everyone pushed hard and many were in head to head sprints across the final eddy to make the finish line. With their arms burning it was time to start the first surf comp.
In the second event paddlers were scored on the best soul surf and style. What better way to get to know a new wave than to get out on it and try to get a smooth soul surf to figure out the sweet spots of the feature. Since Corbin is very dynamic, there were extra credit points for the random big trick if the wave gave up a good bounce.
In the third event each paddler was scored based on how many spins they could get in a 20 minute surf session. Extra points were given for clean spins, spins in a creek boat were double points, and extra points for a clean spin with a paddle twirl.
Here are the top 5 from each event.
Boater X:
John Koffel
Brian Jamieson
Jacob Peterson
Neal Mader
Marcus Lees
Soul Surf and Style:
Jacob Peterson-with some old school paddle twirls and shutter rudders
Brian Jamieson-perfect form in body separation during carving and spins
Chris Schatz-smooth carving and working the wave from one steep spot to the next
Kevin Pryor-catching Corbin can be difficult and Kevin’s first try was butter smooth and right into a smooth relaxed front surf. His first time on Corbin and in a Nomad no less….
Nick Perez- catching the wave in a side surf and going right into a smooth shove-it
Spin till ya puke-Spin Comp:
John Koffel
Marcus Lees
Jacob Peterson
Chris Schatz
Brian Jamieson
