Event Description: 

Competitors are invited to camp and rig at the fairgrounds in Stevenson, just a short walk or paddle from the race site, with everything you may need nearby in terms of restaurants, fuel, groceries, hardware, etc. Camping is included in registration fees, yet further services are available at www.skamania.org to meet your needs.

Please be prepared for changing weather conditions, a damp night and cloudy morning may very well lead to sunny skies with winds to 25 mph and 3 foot swells! Skirts are required on all OC6 canoes and leashes are mandatory on OC1, OC2, SUPs and Surfskis. PNWORCA rules apply. Safety boats will patrol the courses but crews are responsible for themselves – please be efficient at righting your canoes swiftly!

Spectators will be able to view the entire course from the waterfront.

Contact JD for any information you cannot find here. We look forward to another excellent event and we hope to see you soon!
