This will be a series of paddlesports races on a whitewater section of the Potomac River. Each race will involve navigating a vessel (kayak; canoe; SUP) downriver from below the rubble dam near Lock 6 to the river-left eddy below the concrete observation platform at the end of Little Falls. Racers will be required to catch a series of eddies as they travel downriver. This race will be a mass start BY CATEGORY and loosely timed — finishing order will be recorded, and more important than actual time.

Details: After registration and safety meeting at Lock 5, all racers will head to the putin, paddle up the canal, *paddle down Z-channel, and to the start below the rubble dam on river right. This is an on water mass start race BY CATEGORY! At the start racers will line up facing up river. On the whistle/bell racers will turn around and proceed down river. At each of the 4 markers (see map & photos) racers will pass the marker on the outside of the marker (this means you will be between the marker and the riverbank). For markers 1, 3, and 4, you will be on the right and the marker will be on your left. For marker 2, you will be on left and the marker will be on your right. The finish will be at the take out eddy immediately below the concrete platform on river left. Official times will not be kept, only finish order.
