Wavehopper Series

Hamble River Raid 13th May 2017
Saturday 13 May 2017 

EVENT:

 

HAMBLE RIVER RAID (WITH RANKING REGIONAL WWR AND WAVEHOPPER RACE). 

 

NB: THERE ARE CLASSES FOR ALL TYPES OF CANOES AND KAYAK AND ROWING CRAFT OUTSIDE OF THE WWR RANKING RACE

 

This is not being run or insured by the WWR Executive but will count as a ranking regional WWR and Wavehopper race (run as part of the existing River raid race) for all qualifying WWR boats who ensure the type of canoe/kayak they are paddling is recorded and they have proved their membership of British Canoeing/Home Nation/British Canoeing affiliated club to the Organisers on entry.  Failure to do so will mean you will be omitted from the ranking race results which will be extracted from the overall results.

Race Start and finish and nearest Post Code/Satellite references

Hamble Quay, Hamble High Street,  SO31 4HB

Race type (sprint or classic with length)

 

Classic 5 miles (same water and similar course as River Hamble WWR) but you go from Hamble up to Bursledon and back to Hamble rather than from Bursledon to Hamble.

Race suitability and conditions

 

Not suitable for novices.  There will be motorised safety boats, but the River Hamble can range from very placid to very rough and windy.  It is unlikely to be as rough as the River Hamble 2014/5 races but as Summer there may be many yachts/boat traffic causing unseen waves with many obstacles like moored yachts to catch kayaks/canoes out.  That being said the race will include outrigger canoes, stand up paddle boarders and a K4 amongst other kayaks and boats.
