Description

Sierra Nevada Down River Paddle: New day and time!  Participants will start at Reedy Creek and race downriver through First Break, Hollywood, Fish Ladder (VEPCO Levy), Pipeline, and on to the finish at the 14th Street takeout. And be prepared to test your skills and showoff to the crowds as you will have to complete a mandatory ferry and if you are in a kayak, a mandatory roll. Racers will be sent off in a mass start based on division and boat type and the fastest time will win! Pick your boat, kayak, canoe, or SUP.

Sierra Nevada Kayak Boatercross:  New day!  First time trials and then a single elimination, head to head kayak race down the James, heats of 4-5 competitors will battle it out through the rapids and around the buoys to advance to the next round. Top two survivors move on until only four are left to compete in the championship heat.

SUP Cross:  New day!  In this single elimination, head to head Stand Up Paddle Board race down the James, heats of 4-5 competitors will battle it out to advance to the next round. Top two survivors move on until only four are left to compete in the championship heat.

SUP Enduro:  Anyone that is up for the challenge will have 2 categories to choose from, an expert/intermediate division or a recreational division. The expert/intermediate category will have to paddle a total distance of 6km (3.6 miles) and the rec. group will paddle a total distance of 3km (1.8 miles) on the Haxall Canal.

Sierra Nevada Kayak Freestyle:  Back again after a year off!  Freestyle Kayaking, playboating, rodeo, whatever you want to call it, you will not want to miss it at Dominion Riverrock! Competitors take one minute to show-off their biggest and best tricks in the VEPCO levy rapids as they astound judges and spectators alike for the highest combined score and chance for the championship. The bread and butter, macho man, and donkey flip are just a few of the moves you can expect to see as you catch the action from the bridge to nowhere.
