Last night was the first of the World Kayak Hometown Throwdowns at the Playground Rapid on the Slave River. This event was run as a Boater Cross through the rapid. A good night for all, especially our beginners who managed the Playground with skill and ease. Our event started with a seal launch off of the rocks near the top of the rapid with paddlers making it past the second island before cutting into the big bay on river left and paddling upstream to the finish. Super fun and really tiring!
