Location: Bells Rapid, lower carpark. Bolland’s Elbow
Registration between 8-9 am
Race start 9:30pm

The course comprises of winding sections of moving water and ti tree obstacles.
Note: For those entering in the sundries category, this race is only open to those who are in competition type boats. This is a timed individual event and we expect those entering the race are competent white water paddlers.
Due to the course being held in wildwater conditions, it is necessary for all paddlers to wear helmets and pfd’s. It is also recommended for all paddlers to have grab loops on their boats to assist rescue and to have floatation inside their boats to ensure boats do not fill with water in the case of a capsize. All paddlers will require cockpit skirts with appropriate grab loop for ease of escape from a capsized boat.
As with all adventure type sports, we expect that paddlers entering the race are prepared and have the necessary skills to complete the course safely. Therefore, the race will not be suitable for those who have not paddled white water previously.
