2019 WWR #6 Bridgetown



Entry Fee: Pay on the day of the race at registrations.


Location: Blackwood River, Bridgetown
Course: Starting upstream of the town bridge and finishing 8kms downstream

The course comprises of winding sections of moving water, rapids, strong currents under ti- trees, and rock/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.


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.
