RULES + REGULATIONS

Race Layout

  • All teams must have a minimum of 3 rafters and a maximum of 5 rafters.

  • From bridge to bridge slalom course while navigating set slalom gates in the water. 

  • Exactly which gates will be discussed in competitors meeting. 

  • Any gate touched will result in a 30 second penalty. 

  • Gates missed will results in 1:00 second penalties.

  • Everyone on the raft team will have to go around the gate pole.  If any one team member misses the gate, it is considered a miss. You can renegotiate the gate if needed but everyone has to go through to negate the miss.  If the gate is touched it is still a touch.

  • If you miss the finish line eddy before bridge, you and your team can carry back up for a time.  If you go down and miss eddy below bridge you are disqualified.

  • All rafters have to be inside raft upon finish line.  I said in, not beside the raft!!!!
