THE COURSE
Distance: 30km
The race starts 500m above Northam Weir and winds its way downstream through channels covering the opening stages of Day 1 of the famous Avon Descent.
From Northam Weir to Katrine Bridge, the river is characterised by flat water and intermittent deep pools.
2km downriver from Katrine is Glen Avon Rapid, a small but tricky rapid. There will be on-water safety set up here. After 7km of coffee rock, Sinclair’s Crossing underneath Dumbarton Bridge presents a challenge with many channels that exist even in low water.
Not far downriver is Extracts Weir which is a COMPULSORY PORTAGE in this race. The river from Extracts to Toodyay is shallow with a gravely bed.
