The results from the Tay races have now been posted. Please see the news item below for the race report.
- Hello EveryoneThe River Tay was at a challenging medium/high level. The centre/right route on top fall was the line, the rock in the middle of 2nd fall was covered and 3rd fall was white right across.Many congratulations to everyone that took on the challenge. I hope you rightly feel proud of confronting it no matter what the outcome. Thank you to all those that offered support to each other either by accompanying or, on occasion, rescuing.The forecast foul weather arrived 6 hours later than scheduled so we were treated to a lovely afternoon of racing on a stable water level. There was plenty of time to practice in the morning. The 2 sprint runs with 30 minute turnaround worked well and 1 hour was a comfortable gap to allow time for change of clothes and launch at pre-start for the classic also worked well. Classic racing in the late afternoon sunset on the beautiful silvery Tay was a delight. All-in-all the compacted late afternoon race program seemed to work well and could be a valid format for other races to consider. I know many of the racers were looking forward to an enjoyable social evening followed by some fun group paddling on higher water the next day.Read more...
- Hello AllThe forecast is for very large amounts of rain starting Saturday afternoon and continuing through Saturday night and Sunday morning. Allied with warmer temperatures this will wash the snow off the hills.My prediction is that the river level will become too high for many people to paddle, particularly as the slalom wires are likely to become too close to the water on the Falls section.Rather than cancel the Classic race, I plan to cram all the racing into Saturday afternoon by moving the Classic Race to 4:30pm on Saturday.Option 1:Single sprint run on Falls at 3:00pmClassic starting 4:30pm (1st starters will need to launch at Aberfeldy from 4:00pm)Option 2 (if you would like 2 sprint runs):2 sprint runs on Falls at 2:30pm & 3:00pmClassic starting 4:30pm (1st starters will need to launch at Aberfeldy from 4:00pm)Read more...
