BoaterX, where you get to battle for water, kayak against kayak, down the whitewater course, navigating upstream and downstream gates, against your fellow competitors to get to the top of the podium! Athletes will be placed in heats, size dependent on registration at the discretion of the race coordinator. Racers will compete head to head to maneuver through a slalom gate course, with the top paddlers (1-2) advancing to the next heat. The course will range from the top of the whitewater park to below Ponderosa wave, a downriver gate will designate the finish line. Missing a course gate will result in disqualification. Athletes are required to supply appropriate whitewater kayak, PFD, and helmet. Gloves, full face helmets, and additional protective equipment is strongly recommended.
