That's right! A new race designed for boaters just starting out or those who already did it all...but maybe a few years ago.
The new "Not-So-Whitewater" race course is 2.5 miles of moving water on the Hudson River just a bit downriver of the traditional Slalom races in North River.
Aimed at appealing to beginner through intermediate level canoers and kayakers, the "Not-So-Whitewater" race starts at the Hudson River canoe and fishing access point 2.5 miles west of North Creek on Route 28 and will finish at Riverfront Park at Railroad Place just downstream of the North Creek Railroad Station.
The Not So Whitewater Race will occur on Saturday following the Slalom races. So if you've ever thought about giving downriver racing a try. It's the perfect race to get your feet wet! Also, a limited amount of camping will be available for Derby weekend.
