The course comprises of deep channels, winding sections of moving water, small rapids, currents under ti- trees, and rock/ti tree obstacles… With a 1km stretch of flat water (pool) at the halfway mark of the course.

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. This is a timed individual event and we expect those entering the race to have sufficient competency as white water paddlers.

The race is open to all boats no more than 4.5m, have no rudders or have their rudders tied up

Sundries Note (Boats not classed wildwater/downriver kayaks)
For those entering in the Sundries category, the Championship is only open to those who are in competition type boats. As such, Sundry results will not be included in the WW season point-score

Safety: Helmets & Pfd’s are compulsory. Additional Floatation recommendedDue 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.
