Here is a note from the organizer on the course
“Paddle Guru won’t allow me to add my course map… so I am adding it here. If the weather or the number of competitors causes alterations, I will update here (and hopefully be allowed to do so on PG):
On exiting Gingerville Creek, turn left to head downriver to the east side of the Route 2 bridge. Your start line is just on the east side of the Route 2 bridge, on the north side of the river. You will have a mass start on the water.
Your course follows the northern shoreline. Stay to the right as you proceed toward the Riva Bridge.
The 3 mile course will turn around at the YELLOW buoy positioned in the top of Broad Creek. Make a left shoulder turn around the buoy. On the way back, stay to the left, following the same line you took on the way up. Your finish line will be marked by two kayakers with orange flags, sitting just west of Gingerville Creek.
The 6 mile course will pass the YELLOW buoy and head into Broad Creek. Your course follows a zigzag pattern. You have 6 buoys to navigate after the YELLOW turn around. These buoys alternate left/right shoulder turns:
• Buoy one: left
• Buoy two: right
• Buoy three: left
• Buoy four: right
• Buoy five: left
• Buoy six: right to come back up the creek
On the way back up Broad Creek, ping all the buoys, alternating right and left shoulder turns:
• Buoy five: right
• Buoy four: left
• Buoy three: right
• Buoy two: left
• Buoy one: right
On exiting Broad Creek, remain to your left, following the same line you took on the way up. Your finish line will be marked by two kayakers with orange flags, sitting just west of Gingerville Creek.”
