Event notes

2019 WWR #5 Bells Sprint

The 5th of 6 races for the 2019 Wild Water Season - Sunday, August 18, 2019.

Location: Bells Rapids, Cathedral Avenue, Brigadoon
Registration: 08:00am - 08:30am
Briefing: 08:45am
Race start: 09:00am

Course: Starting upstream of the main bridge and finishing downstream of Bolland’s elbow.

The course comprises of rapids, winding sections of moving water and ti tree obstacles.

As with all adventure type sports, we expect that paddlers entering the race are prepared and have the necessary skills to complete the course safely. Therefore, the race will not be suitable for those who have not paddled white water previously. This is a timed individual event and we expect those entering the race to have sufficient competency as white water paddlers.

The race is open to all boats, with the Championship only open to boats classed as wildwater/downriver kayaks as per ICF regulations. These include overall length of no more than 4.5m, with no rudder (or with their rudder tied up)

Sundries Note (Boats not classed wildwater/downriver kayaks)
For those entering in the sundries category, this race is only open to those who are in competition type boats. This is a timed individual event, where Sundry competitors will receive a timed result and ranking, but will not be awarded season points towards the WildWater Championship

Safety: Helmets & PFD’s are compulsory. Additional Buoyancy recommended

Due to the course being held in wildwater conditions, it is necessary for all paddlers to wear helmets and PFD’s. It is also recommended for all paddlers to have grab loops on their boats to assist rescue and to have floats/buoyancy inside their boats to ensure boats do not fill with water in the case of a capsize. All paddlers will require cockpit skirts with appropriate grab loop for ease of escape from a capsized boat.
