DOWNRIVER

The aim of the Downriver race is to paddle along, in the direction of the current, a pre-established stretch in the shortest possible time, overcoming the technical difficulties that the path provides.

The path must provide for a minimum length of 3000 meters, maximum of 7,000 meters

During the downriver no intentional physical contact (paddle against paddle, person against person, person against paddle/raft) is allowed at any stage of the race. It shall be punished with 10 seconds, to be added to the total race time or even with disqualification. In case of multiple 10 second penalties, they are added together.

The starts for the various disciplines can be done in one of these ways:

  1. a) individual starts, i.e. per single boat;
  2. b) in-line starts: this type of departure must be performed in a stretch of river that has a space along the shore with weak current, wide enough to place all of the rafts, one next to the other;
  3. c) group starts

 

The finish line (arrival) is to be shown in a very obvious manner on both banks of the river.

The order of arrival ranking is drawn up taking into account the best time achieved.
