Jordan River action.


World Kayak brings you another exciting event to showcase the incredible sport of WW kayaking in British Columbia with the first annual Jordan Creek Race in Revelstoke.

Revelstoke is a sleepy ski town in the West Kootenays that hosts some of the best late summer to fall creeking in the area.  The race is a first of it’s kind on the Jordan and promises to be filled with stout lines and charging paddlers.

 

The details….

Paddlers will race in teams of two and are responsible for safety in class 1-3 sections. They are required to carry throw bags, float bags, pin kit and knife. Paddlers must complete a familiarization run prior to racing. Volunteer safety people (SRT trained and certified)will be stationed at appropriate locations of the race course.

Registration is between 10:00-11:00am at the takeout bridge.

11:00am – All paddlers must attend a pre race meeting to determine racing order, establish teams, show required PPE/safety gear and discuss the rules of the race.
