Dights Falls, Abbotsford

The River is flowing well and should be at a great level for the week-end.  The Race will be held at Dights.

Many of the senior paddlers are competing overseas and a smaller number of competitors than usual is expected.  If the number is so small that running a full race is not practical, the event will be run as a training session of full continuous timed runs.  The number of runs being unlimited. A decision will be made based on the entries received on Thursday night.  There will be no entry fee in this situation and anyone who paid an entry will have it refunded.

Online entries now open until 9pm Thursday 16h June.

The event includes a beginner’s race along with the traditional Yarra Series Slalom.

The race is aimed at paddlers who are just starting kayaking, to assist in developing their skills and provide them with their first opportunity at racing.
