Giant Slalom 2014
Giant Slalom 2014! Sunday morning a group of partially hung-over advanced kayakers met up to run the second annual Giant Slalom race at the Slave River Paddlefest. This year we had three “gates”: touch river left, touch river right, touch an island, then touch the finish. Racers could touch anywhere on the bank, allowing a large variety of lines. Good times were had by all!
