South Lakes WWR summer series 2016. A series of 4 races run over the summer months aimed at introducing new comers to wild water racing. The races will be held on the lower part of the River Crake (at low tide). The river here has a slight flow for most of its length finishing with a shoot over an old weir.
The races may be run in any type of canoe /kayak suitable for the water conditions but paddlers are encouraged to take this opportunity to try out wavehoppers or DCC K1, C1 C2 boats. The races will be part of the national Wavehopper series so those in composite WWR K1 will be entered into an open class. The races will be held on Tuesday evenings starting at 6.30pm – practice time beforehand if you can make it.
Dates :- May 3rd , June7th , July 5th , Aug 2nd Entry Fee £1 per race.
There will be certificates for age group winners for each race and prizes/ medals for the series winners.
