YARRA SERIES SLALOM RACE 3
Dights Falls, Abbotsford, Sunday 19th June 2022
The event is now an unlimited number of full runs, training session at Dights Falls. The river is flowing well and should be at a great level.
The number of entries received by the close of online entries was not enough to practically run a full slalom competition event.
Help is required on Saturday to set up the course.
This will commence at 2:30. All paddlers and parents are invited and encouraged to participate. A course will be set up utilising as much of the rapid as possible using existing training gates and augmented by additional training gates. The length of the course will be dependent on how much help is available on Saturday. Free practice is available on Saturday once the course is set up.
