2021 Victorian Slalom Championships

Dights Falls Abbotsford

Sunday 28th November

Organiser: Victorian Slalom Technical Committee

ONLINE ENTRIES CLOSE at 5pm, Friday 26th November

The Victorian Slalom Championships have been compressed to a one day event and moved to Dights Falls, Abbotsford due to the low water levels at Eildon. The VSTC have reduced the event to one day, with respect to local permit requirements. Consequently, there will not be any C2 or teams races.
VSTC take this opportunity to thank those who support the event by acting as officials, helping with course set up & pack up and administering the event, Parks Victoria and Yarra City Council for their support.

Classes are restricted to individual classes due to the change of venue and condensing to a one day event: Mens Kayak (MK1),  Womens Kayak (WK1), Mens Canoe (MC1), Womens Canoe (WC1).

Late registrations and additions on the day are difficult, so please nominate each class you wish to participate in and advise compiling on the day if you wish to withdraw from any class. This allows us to better organise the time allowed in the program. If you have any queries, please call Chris Runting on 0429 130 739.

Entry Fee is $50.00 per competitor. A $20.00 late fee applies after the closing date of 5pm, Friday 26th November.

The VSTC reserves the right to refuse late entries on the day of competition.

Please note you need to be a member of Paddle Australia to enter this event.
