This will be the second Garry Boater X event after the first successful event held in 2013.
The Garry Dam release is a Mecca to kayakers, a truly fantastic piece of water to paddle in a beautiful part of the World. On the day of the race we will have an all-in draw paddlers of all abilities from the race heads who think they have what it takes to those who want a bit of fun on an exciting piece of grade 3 plus water. For Garry Boater X we have devised a race format that allows EVERYONE to race in EVERY ROUND so regardless of ability as the rounds progress you will race against those of similar standard. This year we will have MALE and FEMALE Categories.
We expect the race heads to go hell for leather but trailing the course the faster paddlers can get in each others way, knocking each other off the fastest lines allowing other paddlers to sneak through and win. Regardless if you win or lose you race in the next round, through a series of heats which culminates with a finals round so EVERYONE gets placed; EVERYONE will have their ‘Final’ regardless of ability.
This year the registration, refreshments, presentations will all take place at the Race HQ at the White Bridge.
