Badboy update – course change

9 08 2012


Due to high river levels, the course for the Beavertown Badboy this Saturday August 11  will be changed.

Registration is still from 12am, race start 1 pm behind the Blenheim Boathouse theatre. ( Between the Blenheim Railway Station and the Opawa River )

After paddling down the Opawa, and up the Wairau to portage at the Blenheim Rowing Club, competitors will then paddle up the Wairau to a marker bouy close to the Wairau Ferry Bridge, then race back downriver to finish beside the Blenheim Rowing sheds. With paddlers coming from Christchurch and Nelson, and last years winner from Wellington, the competition should be hot enough to dispel the winter chill.
