SMALLS TO THE WALL
Spectators held their breath as kayakers went over falls and under water, and then cheered enthusiastically as they reached the end of the course. Kayakers commented on the race as they crossed the bridge and climbed back to the top for their second run. “That was so much fun,” said one racer.
“The weather was perfect and the water level was awesome,” organizer Andrew Cooper said. “The huge spectator turnout made for a very exciting day.”
