Kew Yarra Descent Update. Racing Sunday 25th

Kew Yarra Descent – Paddle Kew 

Update for Sunday's race – 25th March.

See below for map for additional details

The Distance is approx 9kms.

PFD's and Footwear will be required and adequate bouyancy in the boat.

Compulsory portage around dights falls with on and off water marshalls to guide you around portage.  Please be aware that we are not closing the river or bike track so you must consider foot traffic and public access around dights falls.  First aid will be stationed at Dights falls.  Paddlers will be started at 2 min intervals to avoid congestion at Dights falls and at the finish.

The Get out point will now be at the Hawthorn rowing Sheds (bridge rd/church st/burwood rd), as the Carey ramp is unsafe to use.  Please also be considerate that it is a shared boat ramp and that the Sunday morning rowers will also be out and about.

Presentation will be held at the finish with times posted on the Web site on Sunday night.

Additional Race notes.

You will be required to provide assistance to any paddler in distress and any failure to do so, will result in disqualification from the Kew yarra descent and future yarra descent races.

If you exit the race at any stage, you will be required to notify the race organiser ASAP.
