CATEGORY: RAFTING COMPETITION

Concept

A down river-race with multiple challenging gates. If you touch or miss any gates, a time penalty will be added. The course starts at the Voss Active Klatrepark, below the "Moneydrop" and finishes at the rapid "Kåre". The positioning of the gates will be determined by the river level.

After we have had a morning briefing, we make our lunch, load up the buses and head up into the river.

A full training run will be done before the start of the competition.

Rules

  • Staggered start, intervals of 3 minutes in the start list order.
  • All members must be present at the finish line.
  • Le`man - running start - all team members standing at the start line - raft in place at the riverside, one team member holding the raft. Paddles in the raft.
  • All teams must have at least one throwbag in the raft.
