Northwest Whitewater Racers Event

On August 9th, the Slalom race on the Clackamas river (Roaring River influence) in Oregon was held. This was a race in the Pacific Northwest Slalom championship which includes races in Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia. This race site was very beginner friendly being held on a class II- section of the river at a very low (550 cfs) level. Ideal for first time racers. World Kayak supported this race with the intent to introduce people into the fun and challenging world of slalom racing. Racing of all classes was supported including very expensive carbon fiber racing kayaks, canoes and a lot of recreational plastic boats. We even had a separate class for kayak polo boats this race. As an added incentive World Kayak supported the event with some SWAG for first time racers and winners. 5 first timers were there to collect the bounty. One racer had only been on moving water 3 times before this race!

So if you haven’t tried slalom racing give it a try. Many races are held on “easy” class II whitewater. This gives you a chance to be challenged by tough ferries and eddy turns without the consequence that harder rapids provide. Anybody can try it and the experienced racers are VERY encouraging to newcomers and love to give pointers.

April Update

Lots of things happening here in the Pacific Northwest. This weekend the Northwest Creeking Competition is firing up (April 11th and 12th) at Sunset Falls in Yacolt, WA. Great opportunity to come and watch some of the PNW’s best boaters huck it off Sunset Falls (and other parts of the race of course). Also on the 18th and 19th the NW League of Whitewater Racers will have a slalom course race at Bull Run (near Dodge Park in Oregon). This race is very flow dependent and could be rescheduled. There will be another slalom race on March 2nd and 3rd at Cedar River in WA (good for people new to slalom racing). There are divisions for all ages, sexes, and boat types. Check out http://www.nwwhitewater.org/ for info on the slalom races and https://en-gb.facebook.com/nwcreekcomp for info on the NW Creeking competition.

Also a river safety warning. There has been reports of new wood located on the upper Klickitat River (staging station to Leidl). This is a local class III run that is normally only runnable in the spring. So be careful if running that section.

HTTD Club Slalom Event

natefry wrote 1433 days ago:


On Sunday 6th April @ Seaton slalom course there shall be a Home Town Throw Down,the idea is that the kayak club’s in the Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire area shall come together and go head to head to see which club can claim the victory for best slalom club..

However there is only one stipulation, no slalom boats, only play/ river runners/ creeker boats will be allowed to enter..

How does the format difer from normal slalom racing?

Well each club shall have two runs with top 3 timings going through to the final, they shall have just one chance to beat everyone else to take the win for their club, the fastest combined times for the 3 runs from each club shall take all…. Especially the kudos of best or luckiest club in Aberdeen/Aberdeenshire for Slalom…

Registration shall start from 9:30

I would like to know in advance what clubs intend coming..
My contact e-mail is Hdaznik@aol.com
