It has been a while since anyone attempted Silverton Creek, especially at higher flows but a team of three age old friends decided to fire it up during the Kootenay Creek Freak Week.  Randy Speers with the go pro footage and Carl Jacks cutting it with some sweet beats! Enjoy!

World Kayak brings you another exciting event to showcase the incredible sport of WW kayaking in British Columbia with the first annual Jordan Creek Race in Revelstoke.

Paddlers must complete a familiarization run prior to racing. Volunteer safety people (SRT trained and certified)will be stationed at appropriate locations of the race course.

Registration is between 10:00-11:00am at the takeout bridge.

11:00am – All paddlers must attend a pre race meeting to determine racing order, establish teams, show required PPE/safety gear and discuss the rules of the race.
