March Update

Hey Gang,
It’s March in the Columbia River Gorge (Hood River OR). This weekend is bringing sunny, 65 degree weather. Awesome weekend for boating. So what is there to do in the Columbia Gorge? Well OKCC (Oregon Kayak Canoe Club) has their beginning Progression paddle this weekend. They will also have their Intermediate Progression Paddle on March 22nd. Check https://www.facebook.com/groups/122765061153276/ for information. Also the Lower Columbia Canoe Club has frequent weekend travels. For information check http://l-ccc.org/ .
As for other events, the NW Creeking completion is kicking off on March 14th. Check http://www.wwchampionship.org/schedule/ for information on that.
With spring approaching we (World Kayak) will be kicking off the beginner weekend day. We will be picking a day during a weekend and paddling something on either the Klickitat or White Salmon. This will be Class I and II rapids with maybe a class III rapid (which is avoidable). This will be a monthly occurrence, but dates may vary. This will be a great opportunity for new and beginner paddlers to get some assistance on getting to know the local rivers in the Columbia Gorge with more experienced paddlers along for safety and guidance.
Don’t forget to check our Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/pages/World-Kayak-Pacific-Northwest/1550594721886158 for updates and additional information for paddlers in the Portland, Hood River, and other areas in between.

SARAPIQUI River Festival 2014, COSTA RICA

The Sarapiqui River Festival was born as a strategy to promote the importance of conserving and protecting our beautiful Sarapiqui River while promoting river sports and providing local youth and families the opportunity to get on the river and try out rafting and kayaking.

The 2014 Sarapiqui River Festival consists of three days filled with races of all levels and additional activities for the entire family. On Friday, November 21st, there is a Boater Cross Race on the Sarapiqui River, on Saturday, November 22nd, an Extreme Race on the Poza Azul River, and Sunday, November 23rd, an open race on the lower section of the Sarapiqui River, in addition to other competitions and family activities.  For the entire community we will have kayaking demonstrations, a kayak ramp, boats for use, local artists, informative stands, food vendors, and much more. A local Costa Rican band, Targua, will also be joining us for the fun.

The Sarapiqui River Festival  is presented and organized by a local community organization, Chilamate Activo, with generous support by local and international organizations, businesses, and people.

The meeting place for the festival is Chilamate Rainforest Eco-Retreat located in Chilamate, Sarapiqui, Heredia, Costa Rica. Lodging, food services, and tourism information are offered by the retreat. Chilamate Rainforest Eco Retreat is a family run conservation and sustainable tourism project that plays a major role in organizing this festival. The greater region of Sarapiqui also offers a wide range of accommodations, restaurants, and activities including zip lining, whitewater rafting, trekking, educational tours, and much more.

This year the grand prize award for the Master’s level race will be a flight to Mexico for the famous, internationally renowned Alseseca Race! Secondary prizes include paddles, helmets and much more!
