The Wolfeboro Lions have been putting on the race for 43 years. People still enjoy it whether in the boats or on land. There are often spills but people of all ages enjoy the race. The weather was great, bugs not present and the water was flowing down the rapids.
The race starts at Albee Beach, goes down the Smith River to Crescent Lake, to the dam and then carry into a short section of white water. Then, they go under the bridge to the next dam, portage into Back Bay and finish at the town docks. The excitement, of course, is in the river with the whitewater……
Long time Lake Wentworth people, the Denbys, made a nice transition to the whitewater while the kayak behind them had a bit more difficulty. Incidentally, Dave seems to always wear this hat in the race.
It is always a great event. Come and watch next year or dip your paddle in the water and have fun doing the race.
