Whitewater Weekend: A Doubleheader!
The Maine whitewater season kicked off with the St. George and Passy River races last weekend, and now it's time for another doubleheader weekend.
Tomorrow (Saturday, April 18th) the Souadabscook Stream Canoe Race begins in Hampden at noon.
Note that there are two races offered on the Sou this year - a shorter race which stops before the whitewater (highly suitable for beginners) and the regular race course which takes you through several sets of rapids. Here's a writeup from the BDN if you'd like to know more.
And then there's the Marsh Stream Canoe Race in Frankfort on Sunday. This is one of those whitewater gems which is often overlooked but well worth a trip.
Visit the Maine Canoe & Kayak Racing Organization (MaCKRO.org) for more information on these and other races this spring!
