The race starts in the river right eddy beside the wooden launch ramp at the bottom of the 660 steps to get down into the gorge.  The finish line is at the confluence of the river into Tugalo Lake.  The race course is 1.54 miles long through all the major rapids of the Tallulah Gorge and drops 413 total vertical feet.  The race is a time trial event in which each racer is started in one minute intervals.

There were 35 spots open for boaters to apply and qualification for the race was based on past experience at the Green Race, the Lord of the Fork Race, and the Tallulah Race.  A total of 32 racers gave this 2nd annual race a go!

Chasing Paddles, Boats and Throwing Ropes

Chasing Paddles, Boats and Throwing Ropes

This is what we encountered  while at the Nantahala Open, this weekend.  With many people challenging the Cascades and the upper section of this river, there was a huge amount of fun going on and a lot of carnage.  When I woke up Monday morning to look at my Facebook, all I could see was, “found paddle” and “look at my boat after running the cascades”.   With all of this happening there was so much fun going on at the same time.

At the falls, there was a competition just for crazy things done on Lesser Wesser aka Nantahala Falls.  This photo shows Garrett Madlock with his bumble bee decorated Rockstar ready to brave the falls with his wings on.

Check out this Stinger with a stinger!  Rick Thompson duct taped a chair to the back of his Stinger and Garrett Madlock, dressed like a bee sits on the back challenging the falls ahead.  There was no shortage of action here at the falls.  With Batman and Robin in a Dynamic Duo, to paddling purple inflated dragons, this was a whacky twist on running the falls, to say the least.

What I love to see on the river, is kids having a blast.   Dacey Hay (shown above) had her personal first decent down the lower section of the Nantahala.  Although coming through Pattons Run out of her boat, she quickly got to the side and put her smile back on her face, and continued paddling the rest of the 8 mile section.

With the Upper Nantahala pumping out 550 cfs, it was a rush for me on my first decent! In the end it as a weekend of fun with kids, yet full of carnage and beached boats.

-Nathan Madlock

“You might never fail on the scale I did, but some failure in life is inevitable. It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all – in which case, you fail by default.” – J.K. Rowling
