2014 Nolichucky Hometown Throwdown #1

The first event in the 2014 Nolichucky Hometown Throwdown series was full of fun! We had a great turn out with 23 competitors joining in for some friendly downriver boatercross competition!  We had several spectators who watched and cheered on the competitors from the start and finish line.  The event was held on the Lower Nolichucky River, TN with mostly sunny skies.

The river level was a little above 1,200 CFS and spirits were high for our first ever downriver boatercross event!  The course start was at the USA Raft river access and the finish line was the Chestoa Pike Bridge 1.5 miles downstream.  The course have several class I-II rapids and a couple of islands to negotiate along the way.  We launched classes in a mass start format and good times were had by all!
